Donny Goodmac Shiraz Viognier 2008

June 8th 2012 sees the Donny Goodmac crew return for a riotous lunch at the Hotel Orient's 'Swill' dining room.  The Vinsomniac has a pair of tickets to give away for it, check here for more.

To the wine, 3% Viognier - provides lifted perfume in the glass - and still seen and heard at 4 years of age.  Set against a background of red and black fruits.  Added into the hedonistic mix is a whiff of perfumed - expensive - oak.

Smooth, pure - glass like on entry - with a swirling dark fruited mix.  Tannin is minimal, spice merges into the equation, swirling with the fruit - suggestive of a maelstrom of activity in the mouth.  Pretty effortless drinking, significant length, the aforementioned mix of fruit and spice seem to propel, nay urge, the other on.  92 - Very Good
