D'Arenberg The Dead Arm Shiraz 2017
This wine will have you second guessing as it skips between red fruits and lifted spice notes on the one hand to more brooding, dark, ashen, earthy aromas on the other.
The seasonal conditions are even more evident on the palate where flavour, tannin and acid are in perfect balance. There is an impressive amount of concentration in this wine.
The Dead Arm Shiraz 2017 also shows all the hall marks of a classic McLaren Vale. This is a shiraz that will see it age gracefully for 15 plus years.Awards:
