Professional Reviews

94/100
Wine Companion
Oozing licorice, spice, blackberry and chocolate; very ripe and rich; tannins not overdone.
, James Halliday Issue: Oct 2003



93/100
The Wine Advocate
The 2002 The Laughing Magpie Shiraz/Viognier 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.
WA, Robert Parker Jr. Issue: #148



91/100
Wine Spectator
A lithe, lively red with a lovely subtle streak of apricot and spice running through the blackberry, blueberry and peppery spice flavors, beautifully balanced right through the harmonious finish.
WS, Harvey Steiman Issue: Dec 15 2003
