d'Arenberg Shiraz Viognier The Laughing Magpie 2009

d'Arenberg Shiraz Viognier The Laughing Magpie 750ml 2009     
Sku: 1793610*

Rating
 Wine Enthusiast 89 points (Sep 2013)
Filled with scents and flavors of black earth, cedar and dark fruit, this impressively full-bodied wine demands to be served with something similarly big and meaty. Despite its size, it’s open-knit and accessible, with just enough coarse tannins on the finish to cut the richness of beef steaks or braises.

Wine maker notes
The vineyards and bushland that surround the d’Arenberg winery are home to the native Australian bird, the Kookaburra, famous for its distinctive laughing call. Much to the amusement of the family, Chester Osborn’s daughters, Alicia and Ruby, named two wild Kookaburras who regularly visited their house the “Laughing Magpies”. The Magpie plumage is black with a stripe of white feathers and bears no resemblance to its famous cousin, but to this day the name has stuck. The Osborn’s thought the name was a good choice for McLaren Vale’s first ever Shiraz Viognier blend combining the (black) Shiraz and its white partner, Viognier.
