Willunga 100 Shiraz Viognier, McLaren Vale 2013 $22
This is a superb wine and terrific value, with its deep bright red-purple hue and spicy, earthy, ironstone/rocky aromas. It’s intense and fleshy, smooth and elegant, with ample soft tannins and balance, the flavour lingering long. (Screwcap; 14 per cent alcohol). Score: 93 ★★★★½ – view on huonhooke.com
Aging: Cellar up to 20 years.
Food: Veal scaloppine.
