Critical Acclaim

JH 91
Australian Wine Companion

Bright colour; highly perfumed bouquet of fresh blackberry, clove and roasted meat; the palate is medium bodied and lifted, much like the bouquet; a pleasurable wine.

The Wine Advocate

The 2009 The Laughing Magpie Shiraz Viognier contains 6% co-fermented Viognier. It presents a deep garnet-purple color and notes of blackberry and blueberry preserves with some raisins, violets, peach blossoms and baking spices. Rich, ripe, and nicely balanced, it’s full bodied with firm grainy tannins, crisp acid and a long finish. Drink it now to 2021+.

This will drink very well young.
