From the Stump Jumps through to the highly regarded Icons, these wines offer value, individuality and a true taste of McLaren Vale.

Comprising of the Dead Arm, the Coppermine Road and the Ironstone Pressings, this range represents the pinnacle of d’Arenberg’s efforts.

Sitting here drinking this now. God it's good! Rich and heavy, verging on fortified. Fruit in abundance and all the other stuff wine writers write. The perfect accompaniment to a passionate kiss. If this wine was a lover you'd leave your spouse for it. This is what good Pomerol should taste like, but Dead Arm 2001 comes at a fraction of the price.

Upon release, The Dead Arm' Shiraz has a vivid, young, dense, purple-red colour. Very intense aromas with a complex combination of fragrant spices and violets, dark cherry, blackberry and blueberry, are made more complex with great liquorice, pepper and integrated svelte of boot-polish like characters. The taste is rich, gutsy and virile, with attacking spice, dark liquorice, cherry, blackberry, plum and dried black olive. The level of fruit weight masks the framework of oak tannins; however, the mineral fruit grittiness is balanced with a very long fruit-fragrant, persistent spice will yield a wine of great ageing power.
