d’Arenberg, The Dead Arm Shiraz, McLaren Vale 2008

Producer:

This product is featured in: Top five d’Arenberg wines to try.

The Dead Arm is consistently Chester’s best wine, and this is a typical example of its old vine concentration. Sweet, dense and rich, but somehow poised and refreshing, with integrated oak, a hint of grilled meat and bright violet, plum and blackberry fruit. As good as the
brilliant 2006.
