D'Arenberg Mourvedre Mclaren Vale the Twentyeight Road 2005

External Review by Shop Wine Direct:

Wine Advocate ReviewRated 93d'Arenberg's "icon" wines lead off with the 2005 The Twenty-eight Road Mourvedre. It is deep crimson-colored with a very expressive, spicy perfume of damp earth, graphite, meat, smoke, blueberry and blackberry. On the palate it is fat, fleshy, and rustically styled with excellent layering of fruit, sweet tannins, and a long finish. Give it 3-5 years to blossom and drink it through 2020.

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.

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.
