//Canberra, Red Wine, Shiraz, Sustainably Produced, Wine Region/Sapling Yard 2019 The Curmudgeon Shiraz Viognier

Sapling Yard 2019 The Curmudgeon Shiraz Viognier


The Curmudgeon is meant to soothe the most archaic bad tempered miser.


The Curmudgeon is meant to soothe the most archaic bad tempered miser. A blend of shiraz with 3% viognier, 30 % whole bunch pressed, aged in fine French oak for 10 months. With classic Canberra notes of white pepper, spice and red currants this is the perfect red for any occasion. Delicious with both a rib eye off the bbq or a pizza out of the pizza oven.

The Curmudgeon is drinking perfectly now, but will be an absolute keeper for the next 10 years.
