D'Arenberg Mourvedre Mclaren Vale the Twentyeight Road 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

In its youth d’Arenberg’s The Twentyeight Road Mourv褲e has a deep bright crimson ruby colour with lifted, spicy clove, cranberry and ripening blackberry primary fruit smells, elements of mulberry, light blackcurrant, cinnamon and vanilla liquorice, as well as mint and flowers, especially violets which are also evident on the young palate. Its medium to full flavoured fruit weight dominating softer, rounded vanilla mocha oak flavours, before a long fine acid and slightly sour cherry tannin like finish. After some bottle age d’Arenberg’s The Twenty Eight Road Mourv褲e should soften in colour to more cedary, brick red hues and the nose develop more tobacco, coffee and spicy black olive smells whilst retaining underlying cranberry and floral scents as well as hints of pine needle and tar which can also be found in the mouth. The palate should also develop and integrate with soft prune, cranberry, velvety earthly chocolate flavours and a vibrant fresh acid and fine grained tannin finish for quite some considerable time. Serving and Cellaring Suggestions: Serve at room temperature 16-24 ?C. now or cellar for the next 3-15 years with many different dishes such as char grilled salmon, roasted root vegetables, sweeter dishes such as veal, lamb, duck and goose. Also goes well with mild firm cheese, pasta dishes, cassoulets and traditional risottos. Serve after decanting as an older wine.

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.

Chester’s Champions represent d’Arenberg’s most exciting new ventures, offering an eclectic alternative to the known and loved bastions of the portfolio. The Classic Red Stripes The Dry Dam, The Broken Fishplate, The Olive Grove, The Hermit Crab, The Custodian, The High Trellis, d’Arrys Original, The Love Grass, The Footbolt. The Classic Red Stripes represent the backbone of the d’Arenberg range. Considered the epitome of d’Arenberg’s style, they are a reflection of skillful winemaking and unique terroir – regionally expressive, fruit-forward and approachable.
