User Reviews for D'Arenberg the Ironstone Pressings Gsm

Winemaker's Notes:

Most of McLaren Vale’s acclaimed and historic vineyard land is impregnated with ancient, decomposed laterite granite known as “Ironstone”. Its extraordinary rusty red-brown colour is derived from the iron oxides present in the stone. The larger pieces were cleared from the vineyards in the late 1880s and utilized in many of the buildings at d'Arenberg. The initial aromas of this Icon wine from d'Arenberg are dominated with fragrant red fruits over spices and liquorice/earthy notes. As it breathes, more obvious notes of loganberries, cranberry and mulberry fruits with maraschino cherry, dark chocolate and intense plum notes. There is an impressive background of fine-grain, cedary oak notes. The palate is immense and beautifully structured with complex layers of exotic fruit flavours mixed with silky fine acidity. The mineral edged tannins are superb, almost elegant. Ripe red-fleshed cherries and dark ripe plums, spice and bell peppers are mixed with summer flowers. Dried herbs such as jasmine & lavender linger on and on; the finish has excellent intensity. Let it sit in a decanter and a continuous stream of characters will evolve.
