2005 d'Arenberg The Laughing Magpie Shiraz - Viognier

Winemaker's Notes

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 gritty long fruit tannin. After time in bottle the d’Arenberg’s Laughing Magpie’s flavors should intensify. The restrained tannin and acidity will produce a seamless velvety rolling length with age.
