Note: I publish batches of reviews that I call Good Values Wine Picks. These are from the regular section of the liquor store rather than the Vintages section, and tend to be lower priced and the most widely available of all wines. The last four reviews I did were: March 5, February 26, September 11 and July 26.
d'Arenberg D'arry's Original Grenache Shiraz 2006 Wine Review
Made from 100% McLaren Vale fruit which is 50% Grenache and 50% Shiraz grapes. A tiny proportion of the Shiraz component underwent a carbonic fermentation which enhances the lifted spicy characters. Once the fermentation is nearly complete, traditional foot-trading takes place prior to basket-pressing. The aroma suggests a cooler year due to its intensity and spicy notes. The savoury mineral aromas and tighter-than-normal palate structure also indicates a cool year. Aged 12 months in new and older American and French oak barriques including large casks. Great dark red fruit extraction: mulberry, dark prunes, cranberry and tarry notes. Good acidity. Closed with a screwcap. 4.4/5 Grenache Shiraz food pairings: marinated chicken on the grill, bison steak, rare roast beef, kangaroo, mushrooms.
