Single Vineyard, Eden Valley Wines of elegance and finesse



2006 Cabernet Shiraz Viognier


Out of stock

The unique blend that is the 2006 CSV is comprised of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Shiraz and 5% Viognier. Possessing a colour of red brick/ochre, the wine has pronounced lifted aromatics of spicy oak meshed with the textbook leafy, herbaceous Cabernet Sauvignon characters leading into black berries, pepper and mint. On the palate this medium to full bodied wine is already displaying considerable complexity with ripe, fleshy, black fruits, spice and dried herbs, combining with a powerful and lengthy savoury tannin finish. Enjoy any time over the next decade

The 2006 vintage was characterised by high to excellent fruit quality but with only average yields in the Eden Valley. Winter and spring rains were some of the best for years in the lead- up to flowering in early summer, although some varieties, such as riesling and shiraz, suffered more than others from poor fruit set. The summer was mild with southerly winds, reminiscent of 2002. Brief heat waves occurred in late January and mid-February but were early enough not to affect quality, with only minor sunburn on exposed fruit. Mild dry Autumn conditions allowed for the development of wonderfully
balanced fruit quality and flavours.
