Ridgemill Estate The Lincoln Shiraz Viognier 2013
This is Ridgemill's first Shiraz Viognier, and whilst the labelling is a little different to others in the range, I actually prefer it.
Popurri and purple flowers, cedary oak and harissa aromas.
Red fruits a plenty with a splash of Ribena. Perky acidity present on the first day of tasting settled into a neat groove on day two. The fruit fills out well and sits comfortably not wanting to budge. A pinch of five spice rounds up the finish well offering plenty to think about. The asking price is just about right too. Worth a look if you can get hold of it.
Decant for best results.
Drink in the medium term.
