Lark Hill Shiraz Viognier 2010

This wine is yet another good release from Lark Hill in Canberra.  Largely their entire range is very drinkable, and by largely, I mean all of their wines that I have tried so far.  Clonakilla's shiraz viognier has of course set the Australian benchmark for northern Rhone inspired savoury wines.  Lark Hill's shiraz viognier does not sit idly by, and asserts the potential of the region for this blend.   It enjoys a complex aroma of plums, pepper, red fruits, fresh fruit and fruit cake.  On the palate, that freshness is there again, with notes of pepper, apricot kernels, more than medium acidity and a general balance that makes for very good drinking.  87 points.
