SKU: DARARMSHZ18
Let’s get serious. Selected parcels of premium fruit from across over a century of d’Arenberg’s top vineyards are artfully blended to create this stunning Shiraz. More savoury than previous Dead Arms, the 2018 begins with dark fruits, damson plum, and lovely fennel seed twists. Rich balsamic glazed beets, roasted meats and jus give layers of complexity unlike anything we’ve ever seen. Superb balance. Slaty, persistent, mineral like tannins bring a generous framework for decades of cellaring. This is a wine of history and provenance. Highly collectable, The Dead Arm is considered by many to be one of the top Shiraz in Australia.

”Medium deep crimson. Classic blackberry, dark chocolate, peat-smoke aromas. Beautifully concentrated blackberry, dark chocolate, espresso flavours, underlying peaty / roasted chestnut notes and fine grainy / graphite tannins. Finishes cedar firm, long and minerally with ferruginous notes. Very expressive with lovely fruit density and vigour. A reference vintage. Drink now-2032 14.5% alc”
