2009 d'Arenberg Shiraz/Viognier The Laughing Magpie McLaren Vale
Style: Red Wine
Grape Type: Syrah/Shiraz
Region: McLaren Vale
91 Points | International Wine Cellar , July/August 2011
(a 92%/8% blend, with a pH of 3.31) Bright purple. An exotic and expressive bouquet evokes blackberry, candied plum, violet and mocha, with spice and incense notes adding complexity. Sweet, juicy dark berry flavors show liqueur-like intensity and gain spiciness with aeration. A late note of white pepper adds bit and focus to the plump fruit qualities, which linger on the finish. This will drink very well young.
