d Arenberg The Dead Arm Shiraz McLaren Vale
Description: Winemaker's Notes
Classic McLaren Vale aromas of plum, blackberry, licorice and spice. There is a strong sense of the old vines and infertile soils evidenced through a raft of dark, earthy notes and thick, black molasses characters. There is enough savory oak character to support the generous fruit but it isnít the dominant feature, rather an intrinsic component of an ever changing bouquet of complex characters that ebb and flow. The palate has an incredible depth of flavor and a solid structure built on a framework of firm tannins. This is a wine of great presence and boldness but with a refined, stylish finish that lingers on and on.

Critical Acclaim
JS 94pts
James Suckling - "Shiraz in a very attractive guise here, this has a little peppery edge with red fruits, raspberry leaf and red liquorice too, plus a little boysenberry and a meaty edge. The palate has a core of dark plum flavor, cedary oak and a fine, savory tannin web; I like the freshness and concentration here. Best from 2022."
