The Contrarian 2023

Viognier

I have been working with Viognier for 18 years now, co-fermenting with Shiraz and helping add to the texture and aromatics of my rosé. Only recently deciding to bottle Viognier on its own after a second visit to Viognier vineyards at Chateau Grillet in the Northern Rhone. This is now our fourth release of Viognier from the same high-altitude vineyard (480m) in Eden Valley. 1 barrel (50 dozen) produced. 94Pts Gary Walsh - The Wine Front

Product Details

"Each vintage I like to express the Barossa in a contrary manner. ‘The Contrarian’ is my indulgent, creative winemaking outlet and challenges traditional concepts around Barossan wine.

I have been working with Viognier for 18 years now, co-fermenting with Shiraz and helping add to the texture and aromatics of my rosé. Only recently deciding to bottle Viognier on its own after a second visit to Viognier vineyards at Chateau Grillet in the Northern Rhone.

This is now our fourth release of Viognier from the same high-altitude vineyard (480m) in Eden Valley. We processed and matured the wine using very traditional/slow techniques to preserve acidity and flavour. Designed to age long term in the cellar and reward the patient, this wine will surely blossom with time." Alex Head
