Natalie's Review

d'Arenberg D'arry's Original Grenache Shiraz 2006, South Australia, Australia: 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. 942904 14%  750 mL  $39.65 Score: 89/100. March 24, 2009  Full Review
