Magpie Estate 'The Mexican Dancer'
Barossa Valley 75cl
Our first Viognier! I have always thought this would fit in with our Rhone philosophy. The grapes come from my partner Rolf's own family vineyards very close to the winery. The wine is made by Rolf's sister Christa and as ever I blended the wine with Rolf. It has some oak components which I was very keen on using to give added texture and complexity. 65% is tank fermented and aged, 17.5% in new French oak and 17.5% in two year old French oak bottled after 11 months.
