Expert Reviews


Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - 94 pts - The 2002 The Laughing Magpie Shiraz/Viognier (93% of the former and 7% of the latter) is the La Mouline of McLaren Vale. An exotic, heady, flamboyantly-styled red, it boasts an inky/purple color as well as a gorgeous nose of lychee nuts, acacia flowers, blackberries, and creme de cassis. Supple-textured and opulent, with pepper, licorice, and blackberry liqueur-like flavors, this beautiful wine is made in a modern, progressive style with terrific fruit intensity along with notions of sweet French oak in the background. It should drink well for 10-12 years. - Feb 2012

James Halliday's Wine Companion - 94 pts - Oozing licorice, spice, blackberry and chocolate; very ripe and rich; tannins not overdone. Date tasted 12 Oct 2003. Drink by 2012
