Beautiful acidity, but not bracing at all. Blueberry, spice, cassis on the palate - stone fruits and floral aromas on the nose. I picked this up for $16.99 in Indiana. What a great deal!

...an impressive red offering an exotic nose of lychee nuts, honeysuckle, apricot marmalade, blackberries, and cassis. Expressive, full-bodied, and soft, but more superficial than usual...

Winemaker's Notes:

Upon release d'Arenberg's The Laughing Magpie Shiraz Viognier has a vivid dark purple colour. The Viognier adds fragrance and the perfume of flowers, nectarines, ginger and herbs, serving to enhance the very ripe spectrum of the Shiraz, namely blackberry, blueberry and boysenberry. These same characters are also evident on the palate and prevail with a smooth glycerol impact, following through to the mid palate with fruity tannin. The structure has an accent on fine structure and a gritty long fruit tannin. After time in bottle the d'Arenberg's Laughing Magpie Shiraz Viognier's flavours should intensify as with other wines from the d'Arenberg stable. The restrained tannin and acidity will produce a seamless velvety rolling length with age.
