Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 90

Light gold color. Big, nuanced, floral nose of marmalade, citrus zest, apricot and caraway seed. Thick and quite sweet in the mouth, with strong acidity and refreshing notes of caraway seed and licorice. Moderately viscous and impressively concentrated. Finishes with a roasted note of maple syrup. Still a bit disjointed today: I'd hold this for a year or two before pulling the cork.

About This Producer


In 1984, head winemaker Chester d'Arenberg Osborn, the fourth generation d'Arenberg to work the estate, ambitiously began revitalizing the old vineyards and cellars, investing in improvements that would propel the winery into the next century. White wine production began, to complement the winery's existing production of Shiraz, Grenache, and Cabernet Sauvignon, among other varieties. Being blessed with excellent McLaren Vale location, d'Arenberg strives to create wines that reflect the land's natural bounty. All their wines are fermented and produced in small batches, providing a larger pool of blending options for each final bottling. The winery's operation is truly "estate" from vineyard to bottle, quite an affair when over 30 different wines are produced each vintage. D'Arenberg is well-known for its The Dead Arm Shiraz, and produces two other "Icon" level wines from the oldest vines and best barrels: The Coppermine Road Cabernet Sauvignon and The Ironstone Pressings Grenache/Shiraz/Mourvedre.

Wine Varietal: Riesling


Styles of Riesling range from bone-dry to very sweet. Riesling thrives in cooler climates with plenty of sun exposure and protection from the wind. Along the Mosel River in Germany and in France's region of Alsace, this variety has seen historic success. Riesling is also grown in Austria, Luxembourg, northern Italy, Australia, New Zealand, United States, and Canada. There are many grape names that use the term "Riesling" which are not true Riesling such as Welschriesling, Schwarzriesling, Cape Riesling, and Gray Riesling. White Riesling, also known as Johannisberg Riesling, is true Riesling. Typical descriptors for the varietal include apple, pear, peach, apricot, petrol, flint, steel, and gunmetal.
