D'Arenberg Shiraz Mclaren Vale the Old Vine 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

International Wine Cellar Review Rated 90 Deep ruby. Energetic red berry and floral aromas are complicated by cracked pepper and baking spices. Racy red berry flavors gain sweetness with air and betray no tannins. A suave blend of energy and depth, finishing with sweet red berry preserve notes and very good persistence. Wine Tasting Notes The palate is juicy with weighty, red-fruited Shiraz dominated by plums, rhubarb, cherries, strawberries, mulberry, smoked bacon, white pepper and flower characters then a level of black currants and fragrant spice from the Cabernet and Petit Verdot appear. On the second sip a lovely mulberry tar-like character of Merlot starts to fill the palate with vivid, deep-red cherry flavors mixed with a hint of sage leaf, cloves and turmeric from the Petit Verdot which fans out across the finish with a grippy but polished finish.

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.
