d'Arenberg-The Dead Arm-Shiraz-2000-750mL

Producer: d'Arenberg
SKU: 102
Delivery date: Dispatch within 1 day

A perfume of grilled steak intermixed with blackberries, new saddle leather, earth, pepper, and melted licorice rises from this awesome red. With great power, richness, and no hard edges, it is still young and primary, but should hit its peak in 3-7 years, and last for two decades or more.

94/100
Wine Companion
Medium to full red-purple; masses of dark plum, prune and licorice fruit on the bouquet, then a palate flooded with the same fruit characters plus a generous dash of bitter chocolate; lots of tannin and extract.
, James Halliday Issue: Oct 2002



93/100
Wine Spectator
Firm in texture, remarkably focused on flavor, offering solid blackberry and cherry flavors at the center and touches of licorice and mint around the edges, echoing on the slightly chewy but long finish.
WS, Harvey Steiman Issue: Mar 31 2003



93/100
The Wine Advocate
This estate's most renowned offering is their old vine (90+ years) Shiraz called The Dead Arm. The unfined/unfiltered 2000 The Dead Arm Shiraz is one of South Australia's finest wines of the vintage. A perfume of grilled steak intermixed with blackberries, new saddle leather, earth, pepper, and melted licorice rises from this awesome red. With great power, richness, and no hard edges.
WA, Robert Parker Jr. Issue: #143



88/100
The Australian Wine Annual
Dense ruby. Very spicy, meaty aromas of clove, tea leaf, briary blackcurrant and plum over an earthy background of licorice and asphalt. Rather evolved but offers bright flavors of sweet small berry fruits, fennel and leather. Smooth and voluptuous, finishing long and savory, with integrated firm tannins.

Fox Creek-Reserve-Cabernet Sauvignon-2001-750mL

Deep red central core with vibrant purple rim. Showing typical McLaren Vale Cabernet aromas of spicy blackberry and chocolate together with mint and dark cherries complexed by lifted oak char and cinnamon. Intense black fruits and cherries are supported by firm acidity and enveloping tannin structure giving great balance to the depth.

d'Arenberg-The Coppermine Road-Cabernet Sauvignon-2002-750mL

The nose shows intense blackcurrant and cranberry fruit, and the subtle cedary cinnamon spice, barrel-ferment and oak derived aromas, violet and mint scents, as well as liquorice and chocolate smells. Interwined is this wounderful green edge that lifts the wine into a cool climate sepctrum which typifies the cold year. These aromas combine with some cassis, blueberry, and cranberry, with lingering mocha and plumy fruit and are just showing through amongst a long, intense vibrant, gritty fruit tannin finish.

Branson Coach House-Coach House Block-Shiraz-2004-750mL

A multi dimensional bouquet of roasted meats, mineral, cola, tar and blackberry. Give this one time to open up, this monster is built for the long haul! The palate starts out thick and coating; immediately powerful and explosive, you are then thrown a huge chunk of fruit while the acid and tannin roll around trying to tame it. The wine shows great oak handling and remains succulent, complete and perfectly balanced.

Kay Brothers Amery-Hillside-Shiraz-2003-750mL

Kay's are specialist traditional red wine makers utilising grapes from their own 22-hectare Amery Vineyard.

 

A rich, round, soft, voluptuous, fruit driven Shiraz with a hint of confectionery sweetness in the background. A very approachable full bodied combination of blueberries, plum, Ribena, mocha chocolate, spice box, vanilla and pepper fill the palate with pleasurable flavours and the balanced soft tannin finish has both length and persistence.

d'Arenberg-The Dead Arm-Shiraz-2002-750mL

The 2002 season was characterised by a cold, wet winter and spring, which produced lower yields with good, thick-skinned berries. The cool and dry summer ripened fruit gradually and a warm, dry autumn allowed the grapes to ripen fully, producing some of the best and most exotic characters seen for many years.

Yalumba-The Signature-Cabernet Shiraz-1999-750mL

Deep and intense, the wine displays full palate weight with powerful fruit and soft American oak which was hand-coopered at Yalumba - a wine made for longevity, very much The Signature style.

Torbreck-The Struie-Shiraz-2004-750mL

When poured, the density and depth of the 2004 Struie is immediately apparent; completely black/purple with an opulent magenta tinge. A floral hit of violets makes way for the more brooding aromas of tar, chocolate, licorice and coffee with a subtle hint of cinnamon and spice.

 

The rich, luscious palate of great concentration envelopes the mouth and silky smooth tannins compliment and complete this elegant blend.

 

Food Matching:

Barbecue, ribs, spicy sausages and smoked brisket.
