D’Arenberg The Ironstone Pressings
Country: Australia, McLaren Vale
Tasting Notes: The typical d’Arenberg stamp of dark fruits and earthy notes are countered in this GSM blend by a range of pretty floral and spicy notes from the cooler vintage. Blackberry and game notes are complimented by violets, white pepper, star anise and cardamom.
The palate, medium bodied with a red fruit focus, has a darker, earthier side that gives complexity and depth. More sweet raspberry flavours evolve on the finish, enhanced by the wine’s fine acidity and slightly grainy tannin.
Varietal: Blend of Grenache 70% Shiraz 25% Mourvèdre 5%
