2016 LSV Shiraz Viognier
It is a terrific colour. If you think it looks plush, wait until you smell and taste it.
It's intense and aromatic on the nose. Dark fruits, a hint of spice and smokey/charry oak are what I found here. So far, there was a lot to be excited about and I was yet to taste it!
The dark fruits are not as obvious on the palate because some juicy blue fruits provide a great lushness. There is a nice touch of spice and a little licorice joins the party. The tannins are quite smooth if just a tad dry. There is plenty happening with the flavours yet it is still so nicely balanced. I would have no hesitation in recommending this wine.
