Winemaker Notes

A youthful, tight wine showing a strong influence of the soil "just rained on" earth character. With some air the plum, pepper and spice aromas emerge with considerable chocolate notes. The palate is rich and velvety, the tannins are gravelly and long. There are flavours of garrigue, dried herbs, licorice, earth, chocolate, graphite and dried plums. This is a wine of old school depth & style, fitting for a vineyard approaching its centenary.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Deep purple-black in color, the 2010 The Other Side Single Vineyard Shiraz offers pronounced cassis and licorice notes with underlying hints of asphalt, mocha, Brazil nut and dried Chinese plum. The palate has concentrated berry and spice flavors with an attractive, savory edge. The firm acid backbone gives a refreshing, herbal lift to the long finish.
JH 92
Australian Wine Companion
The vines were planted in 1916 on the northern side of the family homestead, the soil a mix of clay, sand and loam on a base of limestone and clay. Deeply colored, it is as yet very confronting on the bouquet, then a blockbuster palate with strong black fruits which are more savory than any of the other wines in the group, and will be very long-lived. Needs time.
WE 91
Wine Enthusiast
Of all the various d'Arenberg Shiraz bottlings, this may be the silkiest in texture this vintage. It's still a full-bodied wine, filled with savory, earthy notes of black olive and espresso, but the finish stands apart for its length and suaveness. Drink now–2025.

d'Arenberg, McLaren Vale, Australia
2010 The Other Side Shiraz
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.

McLaren Vale

View all wine

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 and alcohol, with signature hints of dark chocolate and licorice. Cabernet Sauvignon is also produced in a similar style, as are ripe, tropical-fruited Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.

Syrah/Shiraz

View all wine

Marked by unmistakable aromatics, a savory palate, and an elegant texture, Syrah is capable of producing fascinatingly complex and long-lived wines with a stunning purple hue. Native to the Northern Rhône, Syrah’s best examples are found in Hermitage and Côte-Rôtie. It is also an important component of the GSM blends of the Southern Rhône and beyond, alongside Grenache and Mourvèdre. Both varietal Syrah and GSM blends are common in Australia and California and are gaining popularity in Washington State. In Australia, Syrah is known by the synonym Shiraz, which tends to indicate a bolder, fruit-driven style of wine, and is occasionally blended with Cabernet Sauvignon for added depth and structure.

In the Glass

At its best, Syrah shows aromas and flavors of purple fruits, fragrant violets, baking spice, white pepper, smoke, and even bacon fat. Many examples from California aim to recreate this savory style, while others focus more on concentrated fruit flavors. In Australia, under the name Shiraz, it shines as that country’s unofficial signature red grape, producing deep, dark, intense, and often jammy reds.

Perfect Pairings

Cool-climate Syrah, with its peppery spices, is a natural match with flavorful Moroccan-spiced lamb dishes, where the spice is more about flavor than heat. With Australian Shiraz, grown in warmer regions, heavy meat dishes with abundant protein and fat are a necessity to match the intensity of the wine.

Sommelier Secret

Due to the success of Australian “Shiraz,” this synonym for Syrah has been adopted by winemakers throughout the world. If the label says “Shiraz,” you can typically expect a plush, fruity, and potent wine made in the Australian style. New World "Syrah" will generally more closely resemble the French style.
