Blind Corner 'Field Blend' Shiraz Viognier 2017


Tired of seeing vineyards owned by others but that he had been working organically himself, sold from under him, in 2015 Ben Gould took the plunge and purchased an established 20 hectare vineyard at Quindalup in Margaret River. He wasted no time in converting the previousl y conventional viticulture to organic and biodynamic, while also grafting over portions of established rootstock to varieties such as Aligot? (a Margaret River first) and a Brunello clone of Sangiovese and Pinot Grigio . The vineyard received its Organic Certification in 2017.

“We have no illusions that we’re going to make trophy-winning wines, or the best wines in Western Australia......we’re certainly going to try our very best to make something that’s reflective of where we grow our grapes, and while we don’t always get things spot on, we’re proud to pour our wines to good people.” Ben Gould - Winemaker.

Shiraz-Viognier by another name; drawn from a single block of 25-year-old dry-grown Shiraz with one row of Viognier, rooted in the gravel, granite-rich soil of Blind Corner's Wilyabrup vineyard certified organic and biodynamic in 2016. When harvested, the single row of Viognier is handpicked separately and sandwiched evenly between the picking bins of Shiraz.
