Starvedog Lane 2005 Shiraz Viognier, Adelaide Hills

Lamb Shanks are in the oven and I needed some red wine to accompany them (both in and out of the oven) as they cooked, so chose a Starvedog Lane 2005 Shiraz Viognier from Adelaide Hills.

This is a very deep red wine with pepper to the nose.  To taste, it is quite tannic, soft and dry with an underlying plum flavour.  It is a full-bodied wine with a long tail.  It started off tasting a bit acidic but this subsided once aired.  It's an okay wine to drink, but not one I would be rushing out to buy again.

As for the lamb shanks, they are smelling great.
