D'Arenburg the Ironstone Pressings Grenache Shiraz Mourvèdre Mclaren Vale 2008

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Ironstone is a rusty colored laterite granite stone with a high iron content which can be found in vineyards. The higher iron content adds a wonderful mineral freshness to this deep-colored wine. On the nose we have a few violet notes as well as blackberry, raspberry and a little allspice. A complex and layered wine, with fine-grained chalky and mineral tannins and ripe sweet red and black berries which are balanced by provincial herbs.
