87pointsD'Arenberg 2012 The Laughing Magpie Shiraz-Viognier (McLaren Vale)

There's only 7% Viognier in this blend but it shows, lifting the aromas of green veg, orange rind and plum sauce with some welcome floral tones. It's got the d'Arenberg stamp of approachability: appealing tangy fruit and plenty of interesting secondary characters, but it's lacking the label's usual softness and, for the moment anyway, the oak is on the chunky side and the tannins a little chewy.
