This is one of my truly favourite red wines. We were given 2 bottles as a birthday present and immediately loved them going brilliantly with food but also as a drinking wine. It was the first time I had ever come across the d’Arenberg brand with it’s red stripe but have since found that everything they have made that I have tried I have loved, both red and white. The Laughing Magpie is a South Australian Shiraz Viognier from the McLaren Vale. I won’t pretend to know what Im talking about with grapes – for that I have put a link to their website below. However, I will say that The Laughing Magpie (and many of d’Arenberg’s wines) are award winners and deservingly so. A little pricey (in Oddbins I got 6 for £14 a bottle. But as a way to spoil yourself and friends it cannot be beaten! I even gave it as a gift to ushers at my wedding as a thank you gift for helping out. I loved it and will continue to buy bottles of it and try as much as I can from this wonderful winery.
