Terra Felix Shiraz Viognier 2005

Victoria, cork, $15, 89 pts, Drink 2007-2009

red currant, plum and apricot on the nose. The viogner apricot aromas were very evident initially but has since died down after a few hours in the glass/decanter. The bouquet follows on right through to the palate along with sturdy tannins and finishes with fresh acidity. Would make a excellent partner to a rich creamy pasta dish, with that fresh acidity cutting right through.
