d’Arenberg 2004 “The Laughing Magpie”  Shiraz/Viognier, McLaren Vale

Posted by Keith Wallace

Why does Arenberg sell this wine for so little? Why sell a bottle of wine for under $20 when so many people are happy to spend over $30? Even the critics all love it. Seems very silly to me. No matter the reason, we have yet another vintage of this killer Shiraz. FYI: the addition of Viognier (a white wine) is a common practice in the Northern Rhone region of France. It offers an enormously tannic and rich Syrah with a delicate counterpoint.

Whoops, better get the review written: big rich inky lush jam oily flowers beef jerky.
