De Bortoli 'Estate Grown' Shiraz Viognier 2005

Yarra Valley, 14.0%, screw cap, $35, 92 pts, Drink 2008-2012.

Aromas of dark plum, sweet red berries and black pepper.

On the palate it shows up a bit darker, with blackberry, liquorice, roast meats and quite peppery but fine finish.

This wine is excellently structured, with oak, tannins, and acidity in balance.

Tasting notes by Mike.
