Winemaker Notes

Big purple fruit to start, super concentrated, this is a wine on full throttle. Layers of fruit, spice, earth and meatiness. While big, rich and mouth-filling, there's a sense of elegance and balance too. On the palate this wine is dark and earthy with rich purple fruits. There are intriguing layers of perfume, musk, crushed ants, flowers and anise. The tannins are alive and textural with a great acid line keeping it all in check. Essence of Dead Arm.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 93
James Suckling

This has a lithe, bright and fine feel with a fresh, spicy edge, licorice and earthy notes, as well as sleek, supple, fine, elegant yet powerful tannins. Long draw. Plenty of licorice and plum flavor and a spicy finish. Drink over the next eight years. Screw cap.

RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2010 The Amaranthine Single Vineyard Shiraz is slightly reduced at the start but eventually gives way to ripe blueberry, black currant and black plum notes over tar, licorice, bacon and dried Mediterranean herbs. Full-bodied and densely packed with earthy, black berry flavors, the medium to firm level of grainy tannins and refreshing acid carry the wine to a long, pepper-laced finish.
WS 91
Wine Spectator
A racy style, with chewy tannins around a lithe core of blackberry, black pepper, licorice and tar flavors, coming together seamlessly.

d'Arenberg, Australia
d'Arenberg Adelaide Hills Winery Image

d'Arenberg is one of the undisputed kings of Australian Shiraz and other Rhone varieties that have historically defined the region. A century on, their vineyards have grown to some 450 acres in McLaren Vale, including Shiraz dating back to d'Arenberg's first plantings in 1912, and nearly one-third of McLaren Vale's old bush-vine Grenache. Fourth generation winemaker, Chester Osborn, recently converted all of the family's vineyards to organics and biodynamics and moved to solar energy in the winery. All the while, in terms of winemaking, not much has changed--all the wines are basket-pressed, the reds foot-trodden during fermentation; everything is done in small batches, leading to an impressive array of bottlings every year, each showing a different facet of McLaren Vale terroir. Having been inducted into Wine & Spirits Magazine's Hall of Fame for earning a place on its Top 100 Wineries nine times, this accolade is a reflection of d'Arenberg's revered reputation worldwide.

Known for opulent red wines with intense power and concentration, McLaren Vale is home to perhaps the most “classic” style of Australian Shiraz. Vinified on its own or in Rhône Blends, these hot-climate wines are deeply colored and high in extract with signature hints of dark chocolate and licorice. Cabernet Sauvignon is also produced in a similar style.

Whites, often made from Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc tend to be opulent and full of tropical, stone and citrus fruit.

Marked by an unmistakable deep purple hue and savory aromatics, Syrah makes an intense, powerful and often age-worthy red. Native to the Northern Rhône, Syrah achieves its maximum potential in the steep village of Hermitage and plays an important component in the Red Rhône Blends of the south, adding color and structure to Grenache and Mourvèdre. Syrah is the most widely planted grape of Australia and is important in California and Washington. Sommelier Secret—Such a synergy these three create together, the Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre trio often takes on the shorthand term, “GSM.”
