Tasting Note

Dark brooding fruit is apparent on the nose with earth, spice and dried herbs. The palate is round and luscious with an attractive black olive and sage character persistent throughout the palate. This wine has fantastic fruit weight, with great supporting tannin and balanced acidity. It still looks very youthful and should easily cellar for the next ten years.

Online exclusive: this wine is available to buy on our website, and not in our Bath shop. If you wish to collect from our shop, simply order online and select the ‘free collection’ option at the checkout. Your wine will be available for you to collect within three business days.

Winemaking

Small batches of grapes are gently crushed and then transferred to open fermenters, where the Viognier and Shiraz are co-fermented. Foot treading is undertaken two thirds of the way through fermentation, the wine is basket pressed and transferred to a mixture of old French and American oak to complete fermentation and mature. The barrel ferments are aged on lees, there is no racking until final blending and no fining or filtration.

Food Recommendation

Shepherd's pie with lamb, smoked turkey, roasted pork loin, or manicotti with marinara sauce.

Press

  • Medium garnet in color with a lingering hint of purple, the 2010 Laughing Magpie Shiraz Viognier gives aromas of blackberry compote, dried mulberries and dried Provence herbs with touches of pepper and tree bark. Light to medium-bodied and rather modestly fruited for this wine in the mouth, it has a medium level of chewy tannins, balanced acid and a medium to long finish. Drink it now to 2017.
