Small Gully Mr Black's Concoction Shiraz-Viognier 2012
Deep red. Smoky black raspberry and cherry on the nose, with baking spices and cracked pepper adding energy. Silky and medium-bodied, with raspberry and blackcurrant fruit flavors, supple tannins and good back-end lift. This already offers good complexity and suave texture.
Established in 1999, Small Gully was founded by vignerons, Robert Bader and Darren Zimmermann and winemaker Stephen Black. In 2002 a winery was built at Darren's Marananga property, situated in a 'small gully' on Roennfeldt Road, Greenock in the Barossa Valley. The people of Small Gully bring passion, experience and history to their winery. Robert started in the wine industry in 1981 whist the Zimmermann family has been growing grapes in the Barossa Valley since early last century. Darren and Robert have established superb low yielding Shiraz vineyards, producing super-premium fruit.
