5OS Project Shiraz Viognier

Big, almost porty Aussie Syrah-Viognier blend from Virgin Wines

Syrah-Viognier is a classic blend from the Rhône; this is an Australian take from the Mediterranean-climate McLaren Vale area.

With a couple of years in bottle, it's still very primary and, initially, fruit-driven; it is only with extensive aeration that it starts to show its more serious side.

5OS Project Shiraz Viognier (£16.99, Virgin Wines) dark berry and morello cherry fruit, liquorice and spice with cool, minty florality; inky pencil shavings with ripe, very fine tannins; intense and concentrated.

Benefits from aeration and will repay cellaring.


Match with darker game such as venison or hare.

Matthew Jukes is also a fan.
