The spectacular 2003 Shiraz/Viognier sells for a song. A blend of 92% Shiraz and 8% Viognier that was co-fermented then aged 14 months in new French oak, it represents the poor personrsquo;s Torbreck Run Rig or Guigal Cote Rotie La Mouline. Itrsquo;s hard to believe $25 still buys a wine of such marvelous quality. The uplifting nose of exotic apricot marmalade intermixed with creme de cassis, blackberry liqueur, and acacia flowers is followed by a voluptuously-textured, full-bodied wine with no hard edges. While it will not make old bones, for drinking over the next 7ndash;8 years, it is a stunning wine. The 14% alcohol is relatively low by South Australian standards.

Nearly black in color, but refreshing for its open-textured, sweet-spicy berry flavors, the flavors hovering gently through the long, elegant finish. Drink now through 2009.

The Viognier contributes beautiful floral aromatics to this wine, and the Shiraz, plenty of black pepper. The palate surges with berries and cherries mdash; taut, fresh and pure. Smooth and firm on the finish. Nicely done.
