  • $18.00*

50 years ago, d'Arry Osborn began blending Shiraz and Grenache and this blend has become a signature style of the McLauren Vale. The 2012 d'Arenberg d'Arrys Original Shiraz Grenache carries on this tradition with pride.
Tasting Notes

The 2013 d’Arry’s Original exhibits all the hallmarks of this traditional d’Arenberg blend of shiraz and grenache. Immediately on the nose we are struck by a complex array of dark, sweet and savoury notes. Plums, liquorice, nutmeg and a subtle hint of cedar.

The palate is typical of the vintage, concentrated and round, with reasonably velvety tannins, although still a touch of those beautiful, fine, gritty tannins so typical of d’Arenberg grenache.

The flavour profile develops in glass, initially appearing quite tight, then gently opening up with luscious mulberry and plum, laced with exotic soil like notes and cured meats. Simply put,
this wine is exceptional value and gives as much pleasure in youth as it will with six to 10 years age behind it.
