"Bessen, steenfruit, vlees, chocolade, drop"

In aanzet de meest verleidelijke van de vier wijnen door de toevoeging van 1% Viognier, geoogst van de Hongell Family Vineyard in Krondorf. De sensuele souplesse die zo kenmerkend is voor deze wijn gaat nu nog schuil achter gespierd fruit en stevige tannine. Nog een paar jaar wachten is het devies of 's ochtends in de karaf en 's avonds drinken als dat eerste niet langer is vol te houden.

"A pretty sensational wine with blackberry, grilled meat, dark chocolate, and licorice. Full-bodied and layered with righteous deep and poised tannins that coat the mouth. It goes on for minutes. Crushed stone, slate. Asian spice. Original vines planted in 1912. Drinkable, but better after three or four years. Try after 2025." (James Suckling, 99/100)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
99/100 punten
The 2020 The Relic Shiraz-Viognier is made with fruit from the Hongell family vineyard in Krondorf, with 15% to 20% whole bunches in the ferment and 1% Viognier skins co-fermented. This is the best I’ve seen it. There’s something about the combination of the hot year and the diminished yields—it has recoiled and recompressed the Viognier on top of and into the Shiraz and brought them into balance/harmony. Beneath its floral and stone fruit guiles is a pool of savory, muscular, red-dirt Shiraz. There is bacon fat and pure berry fruit and spice for days... I’ve recently looked at a previous vintage of this wine alongside an older but immaculate Chateau d’Ampuis, and while their origins were clear in the glass, the Relic proved an Australian perspective more than relevant. The balance between the varieties—and the classic push/pull of sweet and savory— is more harmonious this year than in any I can remember, and the only thing I am more excited about when I consider this wine is what I will say next year, through the lens of an excellent, cool and elegant year. What a fine pair they will make.

White flowers, liquorice, chocolate, a little bacon fat, black fruit and discreet toasty oak. So purple, so full of energy, even for a big wine, stone fruit and plum, silky and supple tannin of many layers, intense blue and purple fruit, silty and earthy, with a cool ‘mineral’ and ferrous character, dense sweet fruit and chamomile perfume to close. Not sure I’ve tasted a better Relic? This is how you Shiraz Viognier!
