Winemaker's Notes

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 big rich and very complex wine, showing true McLaren Vale typicity, generosity and fragrance. 48% Grenache, 45% Shiraz, and 7% Mourvedre.

"Inky ruby. Fresh black raspberry and cherry aromas are complemented by sandalwood and five-spice powder. Fresh and energetic in the middle, offering tangy blackberry and blueberry flavors and a velvety texture. Tightens up on the finish, delivering solid flavor punch without excess weight." -Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

In 2004, some of McLaren Vale's top winemakers agreed to each release a wine under the name ‘Cadenzia'. Cadenzia has been taken from the meaning of cadenza, ‘a soloist virtuoso', as inspiration to each winemaker to produce a wine with distinct regional identity featuring Grenache.
