Tasting notes for Langmeil Hangin' Snakes Shiraz-Viognier 2009
Medium-bodied, bright ruby, big tears on glass.
Leather and tobacco to fore, quite Old World in character, lots of peppery spice.
Big hit of sharp red fruit (rhubarb and redcurrant spring to mind), spice (pepper, menthol), and tangy acidity smoothing out to softer red fruit with that tobacco and more spice coming through on finish.
Definitely more Old World in style, restrained in terms of trademark fruit-bombiness but still a big wine.

Had this at a wine course recently,, I usually don't like Australian wine but this was fantastic!
