Food Pairings for D'Arenberg Mourvedre Mclaren Vale the Twentyeight Road
Twenty-Eight Road acts as the eastern boundary of the Osborn vineyard and the d’Arenberg winery. Most of the grapes for this wine are sourced from a 3.6 acre block of bush vine Mourvèdre that runs parallel with Twenty-Eight Road. It was planted in 1920 by the first and second generation Joseph and Frank Osborn. As the winery has expanded this block has been protected as it represents the history of d’Arenberg and produces this very special and unique wine. The aroma opens with cherries and blackberry that make way for characters of charcuterie with a floral background of violets, potpourri and a touch of lavender. The palate is focused and shows restraint with fruits in the red spectrum well in check and balanced with defining savoury characteristics of ripe dried herbs, roasted vegetables, cooked meats and a pleasant and varietal iodine character. The palate builds with thyme adding complexity to the finish with long gritty tannins. Tightly structured this wine will reward cellaring. Decanting recommended.
