Upon release dArenbergs The Laughing Magpie Shiraz Viognier has a vivid dark purple colour. The Viognier adds fragrance and the perfume of flowers, nectarines, ginger and herbs, serving to enhance the very ripe spectrum of the Shiraz, namely blackberry, blueberry and boysenberry.
These same characters are also evident on the palate and prevail with a smooth glycerol impact, following through to the mid palate with fruity tannin.. The structure has an accent on fine structure and a gritty long fruit tannin.
After time in bottle the dArenbergs Laughing Magpie Shiraz Viogniers flavours should intensify as with other wines from the dArenberg stable.
The restrained tannin and acidity will produce a seamless velvety rolling length with age.
