The Laughing Magpie 2010, d’Arenburg, McLaren Vale, Australia
This belting blend of Shiraz (93%) and Viognier (3%) is a characteristically bold and distinctive offering from the Australian winemaking legends at d’Arenburg. The dash of viognier, together with 10 month’s ageing in old French and American oak barrels, serves to soften and tame this cracking wine. Perfect as a fireside quaffer for lovers of big bold reds and it would really sing with a big lump of charred beef.
Good enough to have made it as Harriet’s “Wines We Love” choice for November and she’s a lady with exacting standards!
