Winemaker Notes

Fruit aromas are initially subdued, with cedar, peat, fennel and cured meats dominant. Gradually sweeter fruit characters develop, eventually taking pride of place. Black and purple fruits, licorice and sweet beetroot emmerge. The palate follows suit. Initially earthy and savory, slowly giving way to sweeter and spicier fruits. The mouthfeel is very sleek and focused. Tannins are prominent and drive the wine to a long finish but never feel extracted. All in all, an ethereal wine, that will reward the connoisseur with patience!

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
RP 95
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Deep garnet-colored with a hint of purple, the 2011 The Dead Arm Shiraz has a quite youthful nose revealing intense cassis, plum and mulberry scents with hoisin sauce, Szechuan pepper and an earthy undercurrent
D 94
Decanter
Old vines with ‘dead arm’, or Eutypa dieback which slowly kills vine wood, reducing yields, provide a double whammy of concentration. In a mild year, the 2011 retains Dead Arm’s intensity of flavour, bringing its innate savouriness to the fore. This is an elegant Shiraz with pronounced inky florals, earth, smoked meat and ironstone minerality to its persistent blackberry and blackcurrant fruit. A particularly translucent expression of terroir and vintage.

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 with Grenache and Mourvèdre, 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 Blends of Southern Rhône, 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.”
