SKU: DARMAGSHV17
The Laughing Magpie 2017 offers an intense bouquet, with peppery spice, hints of fragrant flower and perfume aromas, plus nectarines, apricots, ginger and herbs from the small parcel of viognier that the shiraz is co-fermented with. On the palate the shiraz is more dominant. There is some sweeter fruit characters like blackberry, blueberry and boysenberry. The palate is rich and generous and soft silky tannins.

”I listed this wine eons ago as a sommelier in New York and Tokyo. Curious to see if the style has shifted – it has. Fresher, more medium-bodied, with better integrated oak. Iodine, olive, tomato leaf, blue- and black-fruit aspersions and reductive violet aromas. A bit of a blunt finish, but will have its fans.”
