About

Pete and Sofie Hiscock are the Rock and the Wisdom respectively behind this label.

After years spent behind the scenes at some of the country’s most loved wineries, it was time for Pete to do something on his own. It was a long and patient journey and the wines are all the better for it.

This Shiraz Viognier is from Koonunga Hill in the Barossa Valley. The addition of a few percent of Viognier skins to the ferment has brought out the slinky, sublime aromatics usually pushed to the background in this wine style.

Campbell Mattinson called it, “a red to woo a crowd” in his 93 point review.

It’s soft and seductive, in Pete’s words, “It’s bringing sexy back”

Only 70 dozen made.

What It Tastes Like

Meat, clove, spice and mineral notes lend a complex edge to the pour of ripe, juicy, sweet fruit. This is a red to woo a crowd. The viognier has a clear influence but it’s hard to see it as anything other than a joyous one. Fine tannin. Fine wine. Enjoyment writ large.
