5 Stars and Top 5 in Cuisine Magazine Shiraz tasting 2017.
The nose evokes all those childhood memories of picking wild blackberries, mulberries and raspberries, complete with woody spice and brambly notes. The palate shows further layers of complexity woven through the sweet berry fruits. Earthiness shines through, perhaps even a suggestion of rich beef reduction, leather and walnut. Chewy tannins complete this generous and complex wine. A pleasure to match with all kinds of rich, meaty dishes. Wine Maker
“The Love Grass? It’s not something you smoke,” says d’Arenberg winemaker Chester Osborn. “It’s actually a vineyard weed that attaches to vineyard workers’ socks like Velcro.” So there you go. A hundred per cent McLaren Vale shiraz, this has a nose of jammy berries and currants with a chocolatey-meat-stocky regional layer. It has excellent concentration, yet it’s not heavy, and seamless fruit flavour fills the mouth. Easy drinking, yet rather special too." Cuisine Magazine
