Red Wine by d’Arenberg from McLaren Vale, Australia. Intoxicating and ethereal. Allow this wine to develop slowly in your glass and watch as the earthen and woody spiced nose unfurls to reveal sweet plummy fruits, supported with highlights of cardamom, nutmeg and cinnamon. A recognizable undercurrent of game and cured meats, ties the link between this vintage and previous ones. The palate, whilst rich and juicy with its abundance of plums and mulberries, displays an ample volume of textured, velvety tannins which tame the mid palate creaminess ensuring a long, savory finish.
