SKU: DAROTHSHZ11
A nose and palate almost indefinable, such are their complexity. A complete list of flavours would be almost endless. Immediately on the nose we are struck by sooty, meaty and woody characters. These are aromas that we see time and time again in this wine and can only be attributed to the very old age of the vines (fast approaching their 100th birthday!). The palate gives insight into how The Other Side is likely to evolve. Among the brooding savoury characters we find sweet purple fruits, dark chocolate and liquorice. The structure of the wine is firm and drying. We are undoubtedly looking at a wine that will reward those with patience.

”The star of D'Arenberg's single vineyard show from '11. Has a calm, confident authority to it. Dense black fruit, tannin that hits the finish and then arcs back through the wine, reinventing and re-presenting it. Smoky, cedary, creamy oak adds polish. It is a wine of luxurious force.”
– Campbell Mattinson
