Graham Beck The Catalyst Shiraz Viognier 2010

The grapes Syrah and Viognier were picked at absolute phenolic ripeness, jointly destalked and then cool soaked for 3 days at 12 degrees C. Co-fermented by natural yeast with an extended skin contact time of 12 days. The wine was then pressed and taken to barrel for malolactic fermentation and barrel aging. Tasting Notes: Great primary fruit character with black cherries and floral character. Great perfume notes with a nice integration between the fruit and the wood. The careful interaction between Syrah and Viognier makes this intriguing wine grow to become the catalyst between mother nature and the enjoyment of this wine!
