The Laughing Magpie Shiraz Viognier
The Kookaburra is a native Australian bird famous for its distinctive laughing call, Chester's young daughters named them 'Laughing Magpies'. The Magpie plumage is black with a stripe of white feathers, representing McLaren Vale's first ever blend combining the (black) Shiraz and its white partner, Viognier.
Quintessential McLaren Vale Shiraz, with the added alchemy of the co-fermented viognier skins this wine makes a statement. Bold, fragrant aromas and some peppery spice. The black Doris plum, mulberry and boysenberries are overlayed with a perfume of red fruit sweetness. All the berries! Rounded yet chalky tannins add
great structure and mouth feel to this core d’Arenberg wine. Cellar me now for the good times ahead.
