Winemaker Notes

Incredible volumes of varietal expression on the nose with plum, blueberry, raspberry and an undercurrent of earth and game. The palate, whilst generous, remains medium bodied. Chalky tannins paired with succulent acidity make this Grenache exceedingly lively and mouthwatering. A number of years in bottle has refined this wine, smoothing edges whilst maintaining youthful appeal. Further aging will build ever increasing layers of complexity and texture.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 92
James Suckling
Ripe red cherries, cranberries, dried rose petals, leather, Indian spices and redcurrants. Medium to full body, juicy and lithe tannins, a lovely serving of acidity and a round, spicy finish.
WE 91
Wine Enthusiast

This wine is held back before release longer than most Aussie reds. With five years of bottle age to date, it still shows Winemaker Chester Osborn’s characteristic affinity to structure and power over plushness. While the brambly plum and raspberry fruit still feels ripe, it’s caught up in a web of black pepper, cedar and savory tones. These earthy, savory nuances carry through to the palate, which is blanketed in tight-grained tannins, with juicy fruit peeping through the cracks.

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.
