d'Arenberg d'Arrys Original Shiraz Grenache 2010

Product code: 14ARE110B2010

On the nose it's a complex array of dark, sweet and savoury notes. Plums, liquorice, nutmeg and a subtle hint of cedar. The palate is typical of the vintage, concentrated and round, with reasonably velvety tannins, although still a touch of those beautiful, fine, gritty tannins so typical of d’Arenberg grenache. The flavour profile develops in glass, initially appearing quite tight, then gently opening up with luscious mulberry and plum, laced with exotic soil like notes and cured meats.

Production information

Producer: d'Arenberg

d’Arenberg is one of the most significant wineries in McLaren Vale. Founded in 1912 by Joseph Osborn, fourth generation, Chester Osborn took over the reins as Chief Winemaker in 1984. The last decade has seen Chester develop a range of white wines every bit as individual and thrilling as the red Rhone varieties with which the company made its name. There is method to his madness and no one knows their soils and vines better than Chester.


Production note

Oak maturation for two thirds 12-21 months in older French and American barriques. One third large oak casks. Small batches are crushed. These batches remain separate until final blending. Foot treading is undertaken two thirds of the way through fermentation. When tannin extraction is just right the wine is basket pressed and transferred to a mixture of new and old French and old American oak barriques as well as large casks to complete primary and secondary fermentation. Barrel fermented component is aged on lees to keep the wine fresh while also reducing the oak influence. No racking until final blending. No fining or filtration prior to bottling.
