Philip Shaw The Dreamer Viognier

Philip Shaw The Dreamer Viognier

Philip Shaw The Dreamer Viognier – Intense 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.

The dreamer challenges convention and inspires innovation. Our Viognier keeps us dreaming, it is a constant reminder to question and create.
We trust our instincts to explore the potential in our vineyard to craft wine of distinction.
Winemaking Notes
• Harvested early for high acidity and lower alcohol
• Coarse settling at ambient temperature overnight
• fermented on light solids with a selected yeast at 14-16C temperatures to enhance its aromatic potential and maintain freshness.
• Ferment stopped to leave residual sugar of 7g/L
• Short maturation on fermentation solids

Winemakers Tasting Notes
The Dreamer is light straw yellow with hues of green. Fresh apricots and violets on the nose with lifts of lemon.
The palate is bright and fresh with vivid acid and juicy fruits. The balance of fruit and acid give the wine depth and vibrancy.

Philip Shaw

“The adventure began when Philip purchased the land for his Koomooloo vineyard in June 1988. In close proximity to the region’s highest peak, Mt Canobolas, Koomooloo vineyard rises to an altitude of 900M with red loam soils over limestone.
In detail the Orange region and particularly Koomooloo Vineyard is perfect for the styles of wines Philip is keen to make.
Philip Shaw Wines are made only from the grapes grown on Koomooloo, a 47ha vineyard, most of which was planted in 1988/89. “

Australia’s first vines were planted in New South Wales on the Farm Cove foreshore. The first commercial wine was made there, and the first wine exported to England – by Gregory Blaxland in 1823. Given the size and climate diversity of NSW and its large population, it is surprising that the state does not play a bigger role in Australian wine. It is a state of great contrasts, from the huge, flat expanse of irrigated vineyards in the Riverina area near Griffith to the high uplands of Mudgee in the north. The Hunter Valley is the most recognised region within NSW, famous for its long-lived Semillons and unique styled Shiraz. Riverina is the largest wine-producing region. The more recent viticultural developments are within the regions along the Great Dividing Range: Mudgee, Orange, Cowra, Hilltops etc. There is much promise and interest in the wines now being produced within these regions.
