Johnny Q Shiraz-Viognier 2017



A very exotic rendition of the classic Shiraz-Viognier style that is drinking perfectly right now. The grapes for this wine were sourced mostly from the Barossa Valley, Australia’s world-famous Shiraz region.

Dark purple, with a big nose of blueberry jam and new leather. The fun continues on the palate, where sweet tannins meld with lush fruit, star anise and eucalyptus to give an overall impression of indulgence and wanton abandon.

Enjoy this red on its own or with roast rack of lamb or mature hard cheeses.

  • Glossy, ripe, luxuriant
  • 750ml

Producer: Quarisa Wines

Established in 2005 and based in the McPherson Ranges in rural New South Wales, John and Josephine Quarisa lease winery space and source fruit from various established regions throughout Australia to craft full-flavoured wines of excellent value. Australians of Italian heritage, their mottos ‘passion is everything’ and ‘never take life too seriously’ perfectly represents the attitude they have towards their venture and life in general.

A winemaker for over 30 years, during which time he has worked for some of the country’s largest and most well-known wineries including McWilliams, Casella and Nugan Estate, John has been awarded some of Australia’s greatest accolades including both the Jimmy Watson and Stodart Trophies. After becoming an International and Australian Wine Show Judge, John’s experience and passion drove him to develop a range of wines that reflected the attributes he loves in great wines; down to earth, full of character and approachable are words which describe both the winemaking style and the winemaker himself.

  • James Halliday

    "Vibrant purple hue; a perfumed and attractive bouquet of black fruits, violets, spice and leather; the palate is fleshy, medium- bodied and lively, with the viognier component barely discernible amongst the abundant fresh black fruits on offer; extremely good value."
