Langmeil Hangin Snakes - Shiraz Viogner

A truly different Australian wine. Barossa Valley brings us Langmeil's Hangin Snakes Shiraz. Unlike normal blends, this wine incorporates 4% Viogner (Vee-Own-Yeah) and it gives a very unique flavor. Deep purple in color with red tinges this wine presents aromas of bramble fruit. Blackberries lead to herb and spice notes. Full-bodied, this wine follows with jammy, plummy flavors that are smooth and echo black fruit off the bouquet. Strange yet possibly from the Viogner, one may find slight touches of floral apricot or peach in the mid-palate. Well ingrained tannins and an ever so slight CO2 touch give this wine some edge but, the finish is the right blend of velvet and hammer and indeed long-lived.

Cote Rotie roots and down-under ripeness.  An excellent expression from Australia.
