D'Arenberg the Galvo Garage Cabernet Blend 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Family owned d’Arenberg is located in the breath taking McLaren Vale in South Australia, and produces an enviable range of wines. From humble beginnings, these wines quickly gained cult status amongst imbibers and judges alike - it’s a deft combination of winemaking tradition and vinous innovation. A tall order for some, but one that d’Arenberg takes in their stride as they continue to push the boundaries and get under the skin of each individual vineyard in order to get the best from the vines. This is backed up by an engaging consumer-friendly approach to the ‘deadly serious fun’ of wine. The nose is lifted, fragrant and inviting, cassis and blueberry are evident without being dominant. This allows the tomato vine, herb and leafy earthiness to play an equal part of what is a complex aroma. The palate is savoury, spicy and elegant. It’s deep and dark with rhubarb adding to the fruit spectrum and sitting alongside a subtle violet nuance and savoury elements of dark chocolate and dried herbs. There is no explosion of fruit, but rather an elegant and gradual building of complexity with persistent mineral, chalky tannins providing authoritative, balanced structure.

The Galvo Garage Cabernet-Merlot-Cabernet Franc 2003 - d'Arenberg: The Galvo Garage Cabernet-Merlot-Cabernet Franc 2003 - Rotwein von d'ArenbergDer Garagenwein nach bordelaisem Vorbild leuchtet in tiefer, purpurroter Farbe. Sein Bukett duftet nach schwarzer Johannisbeere, dunkler Pflaume, Maulbeere, Kirschen und getrockneten Blüten. Für Komplexität und Reifepotenzial sorgen würzige Noten von Zimt, Zedernholz und Muskatnuss. Am Gaumen finden sich die Fruchtaromen in seidig-eleganter Weise wieder, kombiniert mit eienm üppigen aber feinen Tannin im Bordeaux-Style.Insgesamt ist der The Galvo Garage Cabernet-Merlot-Cabernet Franc 2003 sehr erfrischend und dennoch klassisch.Weingut: d'ArenbergLand: AustralienRegion: McLaren ValeRebsorte: Cabernet Sauvignon 47%, Merlot 20%, Cabernet Franc 14%, Petit Verdot 19%Inhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 14,5 Vol.%Säuregehalt: 7,25 g/lRestsüße: 0,5 g/lEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16-18°C Auszeichnungen:90 Parker Punkte Rotwein > Australien > McLaren Vale
