2012 d'Arenberg Shiraz McLaren Vale

(0) No Reviews yet


I love the inky, supple black fruit of the D'Arenberg "The Dead Arm" Shiraz. It is intensity defined, round and sweet-fruited, but yet still balanced and graceful. So good!" - Arnaldo Burgos, Wine Scout

Referring to a vine disease that cripples half the plant, but concentrates the fruit from the other half, this is almost over-the-top with flavors of black raspberries, cedar, black cherry and spicy mocha. Did you get the memo that declares black, hedonistic Aussie Shiraz like this is not, and has never been, a guilty pleasure? "
