'James Halliday - 2005 Australian Wine Companion'


Deep garnet-brick coloured, the 2002 The Laughing Magpie Shiraz Viognier gives notes of prunes and dried mulberry over tobacco, sandalwood, spice box and pencil lead. Open, expressive and drinking beautifully right now, the palate is very spicy with pleasant chocolate and savory flavours textured by firm velvety tannins. It finishes long with just enough freshness.

There is an increasing trend to blend Shiraz with Viognier, a practice that originated in the Cote Rotie. Many people are surprised to learn that Viognier is a white grape variety which is used to lift the aromatics and add complexity to Shiraz. This wine has been matured in both French and American oak. Totally opaque black crimson colour with black crimson hue. Aroma of dark chocolate, spice, ripe plum and violets – a delightful sniff. The palate is impressive with its generous ripe fruit flavours and explosive blackpepper character over a blackberry and pencil shavings back palate. Excellent length and depth. Fine grained tannins, dry but balanced to fruit with long aftertaste of ripe plum and spice.

Your Questions, Answered

What do you need from me to get started?

We will need you to confirm that you are over 18 (for obvious reasons!) and to open an account by registering on the site. This will include provision of credit card details for any eventual purchases. You will also need to sign that you have read the terms and conditions.

How many wines are in each Lot?

You will see the quantity (number of bottles) stated above the price. Please note that the bid-price is per bottle so you will need to multiply the price by the number of bottles in the lot to calculate the total price of the lot.

Can I cancel my bid if I change my mind?

All bids are final - please think before you confirm your bid.

How much is the Buyers' Commission?

We have an extremely competitive buyers' commission of 16.5% (GST inclusive). This will be added to the final winning price of your Lot at the end of the auction.

What are your freight charges?

Is there a Guarantee on my wine?

Under Australian law, consumer guarantees do not apply to goods purchased at auction - all such purchases are at the risk of the Buyer. We will always provide as much detail as we can as to the visual condition and provenance of each Lot, however this is done so as a guide rather than as a guarantee.
