A dream, an adventure and a plan was achieved for Philip Shaw with the acquisition of the Koomooloo site for his vineyard in 1989. He had studied, planned and dreamed in great detail of the ideal site for his own vineyard; originally looking in Southern Tasmania and Yarra Valley, Victoria before turning 180 degrees and choosing Orange in New South Wales.
He knew the Koomooloo site at nearly 900m altitude would be a challenge with the all year round cool weather, however the site had a range of aspects to the North, South, East allowing the ideal aspect to be chosen for different varieties.
The high altitude of the site offers both cool ripening conditions and high Ultra Violet light which greatly assist in flavour and colour development of the berries.
Aroma- Intese rose petal and lychee aromas with bright delicate varietal characteristics, with some complexity of oak starting to show. The palate is light fresh fruit, obvious acid balanced with elegant long spice and a touch of pepper.
Recommended by Matthew Jukes in The Daily Mail on 29th August 2015. "This thrilling peach-kissed Viognier is made by legend Philip Shaw and it is unnervingly fine and ravishingly refreshing."
