Smoky, chocolatey and vanilla scented with obvious alcohol on the nose though there are attractive dried herb and leather aromas adding some complexity. Lot’s of power here, the fruit has a sweet sour thing going on, pretty high acid stuff which adds some freshness to the rich, earthy mulberry and black currant flavors but sticks out a bit on the tinny finish which is also a bit hot. Lots of wine, but out of balance. 83pts


User Reviews for Darenberg the Love Grass Shiraz

Winemaker's Notes:

The aromas are complex and intriguing. Each time you put the glass to your nose there is something new to discover. For what was a ripe year the red and dark fruits are fresh and lifted with cinnamon spice and cured meat adding complexity. The palate is equally complex with plum, boysenberry and raspberry alongside more savoury characters of charred meat, black olive and dark chocolate. There is a lot to take in with no shortage of characters to uncover but chalky dusty tannins pull the wine into focus nicely and provide for a long finish. This wine is drinking well on release and could also be cellared for up to ten years. Vegan friendly.
