D'Arenberg d'Arrys Original Shiraz Grenache Australia South Australia Chester d'Arenberg Osborn 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

This wine is named in honour of d’Arenberg principal, d’Arry Osborn, who is a Wine-makers Federation of Australia Patron and recipient of the Medal of the Order of Australia. The d’Arry’s Original blend of Shiraz and Grenache was first launched in 1959 named d’Arenberg Burgundy and changed names in the early 1990’s. The nose is lifted with floral tones of violet and a touch of lavender noticeable first with a back-ground of cooked meat and spicy red fruits tied together with an enticing earthiness. The palate has a velvety mouth feel and fantastic balance with raspberry, boysenberry, plum and prune building to a back palate of spices and a touch of pepper. The silky tannins and a subtle cinnamon character provide for a long refined finish. The balance of fruit, lively acidity and tannin is the hallmark of this wine and with careful cellaring it will drink well over the next decade, but is already a delightfully slippery drink.

d’Arenberg has developed an enviable reputation with their range of idiosyncratic wines. From the Stump Jumps through to the highly regarded Icons, these wines offer value, individuality and a true taste of McLaren Vale. The Icons The Ironstone Pressings, The Coppermine Road, The Dead Arm Shiraz The Icons are the most powerful and concentrated of d’Arenberg’s wines. Comprising of the Dead Arm, the Coppermine Road and the Ironstone Pressings, this range represents the pinnacle of d’Arenberg’s efforts. Century old, low-yielding vines produce intensely flavored fruit which is traditionally vinified and undergoes rigorous barrel-selection prior to classification.

d'Arrys Original Shiraz / Grenache 2006 - d'Arenberg: d'Arrys Original Shiraz-Grenache 2006 - Rotwein von d'ArenbergDer d'Arrys Original Shiraz-Grenache 2006 ist der erste Wein, der in den 50iger Jahren in Flaschen gefüllt wurde und damit d'Arenberg bekannt machte. Im Glas leuchtet er dunkel rubin bis violett. Sein Bukett duftet würzig nach Zimt- und Pflaumenaromen, aber auch Kirsche und Wilderdbeere. In der Mitte ist er weich und reichhaltig. Mit leicht pikantem Tannin gestaltet sich das Finale.
