d'Arenberg d'Arry's Original Grenache Shiraz 2017

McLaren Vale Grenache leads clearly here, raspberry and mulberry establishing fruit primacy; hints of earth warmed by the summer sun, oak remnants.

Darker at its heart than aromatics initially suggest, more of the earthen notes, suggestions of liquorice and spice - black pepper, clove - adding depth through the middle. 

Length to boot, all coming together in what appears a fine release. 91 

Tasted on: Monday 10th February 
Source: Sample
