D'Arenberg Tempranillo Blend Mclaren Vale the Sticks and Stones 2005

Member Review by Aussie Whino:

24 Oct 09 Really nice drop. When I first opened it, smelled a little 'brassy' and thought it needed to be put down a little longer. First sip was a bit 'young' and acidic for my liking. However, after a few sips and it had a chance to breathe, really enjoyed the subtleties. I have to admit, I didn't bother decanting it (who does!?) For a die-hard muted merlot fan (not big on tannins or big brassy, american style wines) this really opened my tongue up to a nice, different, sharper wine with tangy, peppery flavours and (for me) a hint of berries in the aftertaste. Went down nice with a lamb roast, second half went down even nicer with a cold tuscan (basil, garlic, olive oil & salt) pasta the next day at lunch time, especially after it had a chance to breathe. Excellent.

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 The Lucky Lizard, The Twentyeight Road, The Last Ditch, The Money Spider, The Feral Fox, The Sticks & Stones, The Derelict Vineyard, The Cadenzia, The Galvo Garage, The Laughing Magpie Since the early 1900’s, d’Arenberg has pioneered innovative wine styles and varietal plantings. 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. The Stump Jumps Stump Jump White, Stump Jump Red, Stump Jump Shiraz Named after an important South Australian invention – the Stump Jump plough, these wines are typically light- or un-oaked, offering a fresh, approachable view of McLaren Vale’s premium varietals.

The Sticks and Stones Tempranillo-Grenache 2005 - d'Arenberg : The Sticks and Stones Tempranillo-Grenache 2005 - Rotwein von d'Arenberg Der Name wurde von dem uralten Sprichwort 'Stöcke, und Steine können meine Knochen brechen, aber Namen werden mich nie verletzen.' inspiriert. Die ungewöhnlichen Namen der d'Arenberg-Weine, haben keinen Schaden genommen. D´Arenberg verwendet auch Stöcke (Weinreben) gepflanzt auf steinige Böden, um die Trauben für diesen Wein zu erzeugen.Jugendliche florale Aromen von Rosenknospen, Veilchen, getrockneten Kräutern und würzige Fruchtnoten dominieren den ersten Eindruck und sind im Vergleich zu den Vorjahren duftender. Am Gaumen zeigen sich dann weiche und verführerisch marmeladige Noten von schwarzen Früchten, vor allem Preiselbeeren, Pflaumen und Brombeeren. Holz wurde nur sehr vorsichtig eingesetzt, um das komplexe Fruchtspektrum nicht zu beeinträchtigen. Das Finale des The Sticks and Stones Tempranillo-Grenache 2005 präsentiert sich angenehm saftig.Weingut: d'ArenbergLand: AustralienAnbauregion: McLaren ValeRebsorte: 48% Tempranillo, 42% Grenache, 10% ShirazInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 14,5 Vol.%Säuregehalt: 6,9 g/lRestsüße: 0,6 g/lFassreife: in Barriques gereift (10 Monate)Empfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16-18 °CLagerfähigkeit: 7-10 Jahre ab JahrgangAuszeichnungen:Blue Gold Medal, Sydney International Wine Competition 2008 - Jg. 2005 Rotwein > Australien > McLaren Vale

The Sticks and Stones Tempranillo / Grenache 2004 - d?Arenberg : Das florale Aroma dieses jugendlichen Weines duftet nach Rosenknospen. Auch Blumenstiele, Veilchen, Halme, würzige Früchte und getrocknete Kräuter kann man erschnuppern. Auf der Zunge scheckt er nach Konfitüre von schwarzen Früchten, nach Preiselbeeren und getrockneten Früchten, Pflaumen, Brombeeren und Tanninen. Um das komplexe Fruchtspektrum nicht zu beeinträchtigen wird das Holz nur sehr vorsichtig eingesetzt. Er hat ein saftiges Finale und wird in zwei bis fünf Jahre alten Barriques aus amerikanischer und französischer Eiche gelagert.Weingut: d'ArenbergRegion: McLaren ValeRebsorte: 45% Tempranillo, 43% Grenache, 12% SouzaoInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 14,5 Vol.%Säuregehalt: 6,5 g/lRestsüße: 0,75 g/lLagerfähigkeit: 7 - 10 Jahre ab Jahrgang Fassreife: in Barriques gereift (10 Monate)Empfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16-18°CAuszeichnungen:90 Parker Punkte90 Punkte von Mondo 53 Heidelberg 2008 Rotwein > Australien > McLaren Vale
