Mike Burnett, Launceston Examiner, June 2014: "This contemporary style that involves a small amount of the white grape viognier being added to give a lift to red shiraz has been a hit with consumers.
Angullong managing director Ben Crossing said that the 2012 Shiraz Viognier was co-fermented with the juice pumped over the skins in order to build colour and flavour. The wine then spent 12 months in oak before bottling.
This has led to a wine with berry and pepper flavours. Soft tannins and balanced oak play their roles through to a satisfying finish."
