Food Pairings for The Cadenzia Gsm Mclaren Vale d'Arenberg
McLaren Vale is home to some of the oldest Grenache vineyards in Australia that were planted over a century ago. Many of Australia’s most highly regarded Grenache-based wines are produced in this region. Intense red cherry appearance when poured suggests a full bodied complex dry red. This really needs to be poured into a big glass as the wine is clearly suppressed. Quickly intense red cherry, cranberry, kirsch notes to appear with a subtle background of pepper, stone fruit kernels and nutty spiced oak. As the wine opens the level of concentration evolves with ripe red fruits such as cranberry, mulberry, raspberry conserve to black tarry notes of liquorice, dried plum baked olives and prunes with spices and notes of dried herbs. The palate is full and lush dominated with red fruits intertwined with meaty potpourri characters, savoury dry herb notes and rounded soft tannins balanced with silky acidity. The length of flavour and intensity is excellent as layers of flavours evolve with every sip. Perfectly balanced and already very stylish and juicy right to the end.
