Grenache 70%, Shiraz 25%, Mourvedre 5%.
Chilli venison, roast pigeon breast or sautéed calves liver with intense jus and vegetables.
A mixture of new and used French oak barriques for 18 months.
Deep, dark, plum colour.
The nose exhibits an abundance of purple fruits, mulberries and plums. We can also make out a mix of baking spices including nutmeg, cinnamon and star anise.
The palate is fleshy and juicy with an almost velvet like texture. The Grenache adds fruit character and balanced acidity, the Shiraz fills out the wine and delivers early structure while the Mourvedre provides red fruits and dried herb notes but importantly also provides a core of fine tannins that reveal themselves vividly as the fruitiness of the wine starts to recede. Abundantly warm and generous but sufficiently structured to suggest this wine can go the long haul.
Most of McLaren Vale's acclaimed and historic vineyards are impregnated with ancient, decomposed laterite granite known as ironstone. Its extraordinary rusty red-brown colour is derived from the iron oxides present in the stone. The larger pieces were cleared from the vineyards in the late 1880's and utilised in any of the buildings at d'Arenberg, most notably the old stables.
