The Penfolds Cellar Reserve labels are based on special vineyards and microsites, new varieties and innovative vinification practices. They are handcrafted, small batch wines made with plenty of love and attention.
The Penfolds Cellar Reserve Viognier was sourced from the Barossa Valley, where the variety is used in small amounts to blend with, or co-ferment with Shiraz in order to add colour, aromatics and texture on the palate.
Viognier is also made in the Barossa as a straight dry white wine and in smaller amounts, as a dessert style wine. Stopping the fermentation process at approximately half way, the Cellar Reserve Viognier is left with residual sugar to produce a sweet, dessert wine style.
