  1. 2013 The Stump Jump GSM, d'Arenberg

    The Shiraz offers dark plum fruits, mulberries and licorice with plenty of concentration, depth and velvety tannin.
    The Grenache adds a lovely lusciousness to the wine with raspberry, blueberry and floral notes adding prettiness.
    Both of the afore mentioned varieties also give a little white pepper character which has been accentuated in the cooler vintage and really acts as a point of interest.
    Finally, the Mourvedre provides a perception of elegance and restraint through its red fruits with a hint of dried herb and fine chalky tannin.

  2. 2014 d'Arry's Original Shiraz Grenache, d'Arenberg

    The d''Arrys Original is a crowd favourite for
    more than sentimental reasons. The 2014
    version has a lifted bouquet full of mixed
    fruit and baking spices, complimented by
    ever so subtle fresh leather and sandalwood
    notes. The palate is surprisingly quite
    elegant but again the complexity of flavours
    really sets it apart as a wine. There is a
    wonderful balance between acid and fruit
    sweetness that leaves this wine right in the
    zone. Whilst the fruit adds generosity, the
    fine acid sits it up in the palate giving lovely
    shape which translates into freshness. The
    tannins also, whilst playing a role, are
    beautifully integrated leaving us with a fine
    drying sensation onto which the remnants
    of fruit cling. Undoubtedly one of the best
    value wines in the d''Arenberg stable, a level
    of sophistication rarely seen at this price
    point. Sure to please in youth yet with a
    promise to develop ever greater range and
    refinement.

  3. 2013 The High Trellis Cabernet Sauvignon d'Arenberg

    This is a wine of great presence, loaded with
    classic Cabernet Sauvignon characters of
    cassis, plums, cedar, red capsicum and
    violets. Despite the depth and complexity of
    the fruit, the palate remains true to
    Cabernet form, providing a sleek mouthfeel
    framed by a long line of fine, chalky tannins.
    Powerful, aromatic, persistent and
    charming all at once. While this wine offers
    enough fruit to be enjoyed in youth, expect
    5-8 further years of careful cellaring to
    enhance its overall quality and enjoyment.

  4. 2014 The Feral Fox Pinot Noir, d'Arenberg

    An assault on the senses led by an extremely
    hedonistic bouquet, bursting with cherry
    and strawberry notes. The purity of the fruit
    character is a feature and unmistakeably
    Pinot. The palate shows lovely medium
    bodied restraint but again is loaded with
    fruit characters including dark cherry, spice
    and a ripple of rhubarb. This is matched to a
    well etched acidity and velvety tannins.
    Effortless and rewarding to drink.

  5. 2009 The Sticks and Stones Tempranillo Blend, d'Arenberg

    To taste this exotic mix of Iberian varieties
    is to embark upon a tantalizing journey of
    the senses. The nose exhibits an enticing
    mix of red, black and purple fruits such as
    plum, blackcurrant and dark cherry truffle.
    There is another layer of secondary aromas
    though, that makes this a seriously complex
    wine, mushrooms, autumn leaves and earth.
    A similar theme is found on the palate with
    flavours of red licorice, spice and peat all
    evident. The hallmark of this vintage
    though is a rhubarb, ironstone-like note
    that adds an incredible core of mineral
    tannins and bright acidity. The wine is both
    lively and complex at the same time. Like all
    d''Arenberg reds, this wine will benefit from
    careful cellaring for up to 15 years.

  6. 2010 The Laughing Magpie, d'Arenberg

    Dark brooding fruit is apparent on the nose
    with earth, spice and dried herbs. The palate
    is round and luscious with an attractive
    black olive and sage character persistent
    throughout the palate. This wine has
    fantastic fruit weight, with great supporting
    tannin and balanced acidity. It still looks
    very youthful and should easily cellar for
    the next ten years.

  7. 2008 The Ironstone Pressings GSM, d'Arenberg

    On the nose we are struck by the typical
    dark fruits that drinkers of this wine have
    come to love and expect. Plums, mulberries,
    fresh soil and more developed peaty like
    notes are all apparent, with an underlying
    lick of exotic Indian spice. But, it is the
    irony, stone like character that gives away
    the vintage. An abundance of fresh fruits on
    the palate marry well with the more
    complex characters of quince paste,
    cinnamon, nutmeg, star anise and earthy
    beetroot. Driving the core of the wine is that
    vintage trademark in the form of graphite
    and wet stone. This wine, while appearing
    open and generous already, will continue to
    age well thanks to the lively line of acidity
    and the abundance of fine gritty tannins.

  9. 2013 The Dead Arm Shiraz, d'Arenberg

    Decanting this wine is highly recommended
    to allow it to reach its true potential.
    Initially, our senses are flooded with an
    array of savoury, earthy notes. Shiitake
    mushrooms, roasted meats and modelling
    clay. Slowly as the air permeates through
    the wine, the savoury layers are peeled away
    revealing a wealth of sweet black fruits. The
    palate is similarly laden with blackberry,
    plum and mulberry flavours. The sweetness
    is offset by a raft of woody spices and umami
    character. Superbly rich and supported by
    by a core of slatey, crushed rock-like
    tannins, this is a wine that will reward
    patience.

  10. 2008 The Dead Arm Shiraz, d'Arenberg

    The heady aroma is both powerful and
    pretty with notes of fennel, purple flowers
    and blossom mingling with ripe, varietal
    purple fruits and black pepper. The oak is
    hardly evident which allows fruit and soil
    complexities to emerge with edges of
    rhubarb and red mulberry and savoury
    characters of dried herbs, game and spice.
    The palate opens with anise, black pepper,
    graphite and restrained dark cherries
    before it gives way to seductive mulberry,
    plum, licorice and spice. It has great power,
    depth and length with very vibrant, gritty
    fruit tannins providing immense structure.
    Notes of anise and spice linger for a long
    time after the last sip.
    The Dead Arm 2008 strikes a rare balance
    of power, complexity and finesse with
    impressive structure that will reward those
    with patience to cellar it.
