d'Arenberg The Laughing Magpie Shiraz Viognier 2014
|Region||Australia, South Australia, McLaren Vale|
Nice round, plump style of Shiraz. Loads of plum and black berry on the nose, with the small Viognier component adding exotic notes of spiced apricots. There's lots of ripe plum flavors, alongside graphite and dried herbs. It's a luscious, soft wine, finishing with restrained tannin and moderate acidity.
The dense tannins take on a very drying role, adding a dusty note to the dried berry flavors and dried herb notes. A dash of mineral shows on the finish. Drink now through 2034. 2,550 cases imported.
