Click here for more information on this wine"Shiraz viognier blends are all the rage and it's hard to say they don't deserve the fuss, as there are many good ones, and not all are expensive. This is a lovely spicy, herbal, slightly vegetal but ripe red with tinges of licorice and anise in the palate. Features of the wine are its soft, fine-grained tannins and smoothly drinkable texture. There's a lot of fruit sweetness and its balance means you'll want to drink it right away. A few years ageing would certainly do it no harm. Best now to five-plus years. 14.5% per cent alcohol. 93/100."

Food: Vitello tonnato, roast veal chops, char siu pork, mild soft cheeses such as taleggio and Red Square.
