The French have long been adding a little white, including Viognier and Roussanne, to their Shiraz in Châteauneuf-du-Pape to create complex and age-worthy wines. So we knew that Steve Grimley wasn't going mad when he suggested this blend for the 5OS Project using prestige fruit. Made from 91% McLaren Vale Shiraz with 9% of Roussanne slipped in for good measure it's certainly expressive! Lovely inky aromatics of real dark fruit entwined with black olives and soothing vanilla oak. The palate is ripe, soft and generous without being overblown.
