Fire Gully Shiraz Viognier 2008

Fire Gully wines are produced by the rather famous Pierro team in the Margaret River.  Their 2008 shiraz viognier is a blend of 91% shiraz and 9% viognier.  The aroma is appealing: notes of earth, black cherry, stewed apricots and a touch of licorice.  The palate had shortish length, apricot notes but was a bit bitter/pippy at times for my palate, with a touch of heat.  That said, it's a pleasant enough wine suitable for easy drinking.  82 points.
