Whole Foods Market, the world’s leading natural and organic foods supermarket, is currently featuring the 2008 Nine Vines Shiraz-Viognier as part of its Spring Wine Walkabout. As one of ten wines selected to represent the value and quality of Australia’s diverse wine regions, the Shiraz-Viognier will be available through May 5, 2010 at 190 Whole Foods stores nationwide that sell wine.
The Nine Vines Shiraz-Viognier is made by Angove Family Winemakers, one of Australia’s oldest family-owned wine producers. Of Angove’s original vineyards at Tea Tree Gully in the Adelaide Foothills, only nine vines remain. In addition to the Shiraz, the Nine Vines brand also includes a Grenache-Shiraz Rose and a Viognier. Each of these wines are sourced from Angove’s own vineyards and premium growers in South Australia.
“We are thrilled that Whole Foods Market selected Nine Vines for its Spring Wine Walkabout,” said Tony Ingle, winemaker. “The Shiraz-Viognier is a high-quality, yet affordable wine that will appeal to Whole Foods wine customers as they sample their way through the varied landscape of Australia.”
A blend of 94% Shiraz and 6% Viognier, the Nine Vines Shiraz-Viognier has flavors of spicy black pepper and apricot. Whole Foods recommends pairing it with pulled pork, roasted root vegetables and hearty pasta dishes.
