Innocent Bystander 2006 Shiraz-Viognier - 89pts
Availability: BCLDB stores
Date Tasted: January 9th, 2010
Tasting Notes: Select grapes from five Victorian vineyards were used to create this excellent Australian wine. A blend of 95% Shiraz and 5% Viognier (whose characteristics primarily show-up in the profile of aromas on the nose), this inky-garnet coloured wine is full of flavour and character.
Aromas of chocolate, dried fruit, dark berries with floral perfume notes on the nose. The palate offers good fruit concentration of mixed berries with medium-plus tannins and medium acidity. The finish is balanced but a bit short for such a fine wine. Drink 2010-2013. - LC
