Rated 97 Halliday points. "Not your average GSM blend. This release raises the stakes on the style. It's raked with tannin, shot with herbs, full of dust and dry spice notes, and also flush with succulent, fresh, blue and black-berried fruit. Tannin is scintillatingly fine; length is a long-held note. One can only marvel." James Halliday Wine Companion - October 2016

Nose

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.

Palate

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.

Background

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.
