Description

The Dead Arm Shiraz manages to balance focus and complexity superbly. It is aromatic, floral and there is a fascinating amount of intensity that draws you back. The nose is very aromatic, floral and youthful. The lavender floral notes along with plum and blackberries, pepper, cinnamon, nutmeg and hint of five spice. The opulent palate is rich and dense with staggering concentration. Rhubarb and deep earth add to the complexity. The chewy tannins are abundant and balanced by the fruit power. Building through the palate the tannins provide for a long vibrant savoury and spicy finish. 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 his shirts!) and no one knows their soils and vines better than Chester. Chester works with individual parcels of fruit that display different flavour profiles that are influenced by the unique soil characteristics and meso-climates of the vineyards. Each parcel is picked and vinified separately to highlight the individual characters that contribute complexity to the final blend. Chester’s philosophy is to make wines that have great fragrance, fruit palate texture and length. The finish of the wine must have a natural, fine balance of acidity and a complex structure of tannins. Food Recommendations:- Steaks,Roast Beef,Barbecued meats
