Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 93

($65) Inky violet. Vibrant, perfumed nose melds blackberry, cassis, kirsch, licorice and dried flowers. On the palate, this shiraz shows an intriguing mix of sweet dark fruit flavors and firmer earth and mineral notes, with big but supple tannins contributing structure. The palate-staining finish features notes of bitter cherry, cured tobacco and high-octane chocolate. Nothing obvious here.

Classic Dead Arm - Dry, good oak, dried fruit. Nie upfront with a short but good finish. Color and body were perfect. Could last another 2 to 3 years.

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.
