What concentration! With lots of berries, very forward but big on flowery perfume. Intense stuff. Just a little one dimensional, like all Shiraz/Viognier coming out of Australia. Needs a little extra more character. But at this price, what the heck!

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 person's Torbreck Run Rig or Guigal Cote Rotie La Mouline. It'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 7-8 years, it is a stunning wine. The 14% alcohol is relatively low by South Australian standards.

The spectacular deep ruby/purple-colored 2002 Shiraz/Viognier boasts a gorgeous (my notes said yummy), huge aromatic display of black fruits, peach jam, and white flowers with subtle oak in the background. Dense, full-bodied, and voluptuous, with great purity, this compelling Australian red is a total hedonistic as well as intellectual turn-on. It can be drunk young, but promises to last for a decade. Don't miss it! The wine was aged 12 months in new French oak, with the Viognier representing 10% of the total blend co-fermented with the Shiraz. This is an Australian version of Guigal's brilliant Cote Rotie La Mouline, but sells for one-tenth of La Mouline's price.

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 - taut, fresh and pure. Smooth and firm on the finish. Nicely done.

Chocolate rich though this McLaren wine may be, it's also got finesse, a perfumed flavor of black currants overlain by violets. Cofermentation with viognier keeps the shiraz fragrant and bright; the freshness enlivens the dense tannins and manages to lift what would otherwise be a heavy wine. Enjoy the contrast of zesty and rich with oxtail stew.

The 2005 Shiraz/Viognier (92% and 8% respectively) was aged 14 months in primarily new French oak. It exhibits an attractive pain grille character intermixed with blackberries, camphor, violets, and bacon fat. This dense ruby/purple-hued, full-bodied, opulent, rich, fleshy wine should drink well for 8-10 years.
