Winemaker's Notes:

Blend: 55% Grenache, 40% Shiraz, 5% Mourvedre

The Cadenzia by d'Arenberg is an exotic full bodied wine dominated by red berries, dark spice, roasted black tea and mulberry fruits. Shiraz adds to the thickness of texture spiced fruits and licorice.

The Cadenzia is original - being a big, rich and very complex wine, showing true McLaren Vale typicity, generosity and fragrance.

About d'Arenberg:

One of the undisputed kings of Australian Shiraz and Rhone varietals, d'Arenberg has managed to turn individuality into an art form by doing a whole lot of little things differently. The original vineyards were established by Joseph Osborn in 1912 in the McLaren Vale region of South Australia. A century on, the estate has grown to 345 acres, and the mantle now rests with fourth-generation winemaker, Chester Osborn. By maintaining a focus on traditional winemaking and nurturing their old-vine material, the Osborn clan has successfully established themselves as one of the country's leading producers of concentrated wines that are full of character.
