d'Arenberg "the Laughing Magpie", Shiraz Viognier, 95p/Halliday 2013

Et "australsk svar på Guigal's "la Mouline" fra Côte Rôtie, skrev Parker om ældre årgang. Magpie er Australiens første blend af sort shiraz og hvid viognier (d'Arenberg har landets ældste og største areal med viognier).
Vinen laves med samme metoder som domænets andre vine inkl. Dead Arm: Bæredygtig drift uden insektgifte og kunstgødning, sorte og hvide druer høstes og gærer sammen i egefade, fodtrædning før kurvepresning, malolaktisk gæring i små egefade indtil tapning uden filter. Blidere end Dead Arm, men stadig en vin, der med fordel kan gemmes op til 10 år.
95p/Halliday: "94% shiraz and 6% viognier are co-fermented, which gives the expected result of a more ethereal bouquet and a spicy, lifted red and black fruit palate, the tannin need diminished, all without robbing the wine of the generosity which in one way or another always marks the d’Arenberg red wines.” (2019)
91p/Josh Raynolds i Vinous: “Opaque ruby. Deep-pitched dark berry, candied flowers and white pepper scents pick up a smoky mineral overtone with aeration. Juicy, broad and concentrated, showing good clarity to the sappy blackberry, cherry and violet pastille flavors. Round and seamless in texture, displaying strong closing tenacity, harmonious tannins and resonating florality.”
90p/Wine Spectator: “There’s plenty of personality and charm here. Opens up firm and savory, with peppery bacon notes to the core of tangy red fruit flavors. Toothsome tannins provide an appealing chewy character on the finish.” (2017)

d'Arenberg "the Dead Arm" Shiraz, 96p/Halliday 2008

Den døde arm er ægte kult! Vinstokkene er ramt af Eutypa Lata, en særlig svampesygdom, som har ramt en del af d'Arenbergs Shiraz. Svampen dræber den ene af vinstokkens to arme ,men den anden overlever. Andre river dem op, Chester Osborn (FOTO) lader dem blive og glæder sig over den høje kvaliltet gr lavt udbytte! 100% shiraz, 100% McLaren Vale, bæredygtig drift uden kunstgødning, insektgifte og kunstvanding, gæring i åbne kar, fodtrædning, malolaktisk gæring og lagring i små egefade til tapning uden klaring eller filter. De naturlige metoder giver d'Arenbergs vine en større friskhed, intensitet i frugt og balance i syren er uden den plumpe sværvægter-fornemmelse, man kan være ude for i andre stærke Shirazvine fra Australien.
2008 er flot efter 10 år, men det haster bestemt ikke! 96p + årets vine/Hallidays Wine Companion, 92p/Galloni i Vinous,
91p/RobertParker: Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2008 The Dead Arm Shiraz has a reduced rubber character to begin then pronounced aromas of warm blackberries, licorice, earth, thyme, moss and a whiff of game. Crisp, full and very concentrated in the mouth, it has firm, very fine tannins and a long earthy finish". 95p + 5*/Huon Hooke
Perfekt flaske og stand -nydes nu-2022+.
Og et par ord mere fra 31.7. 2013: If you are in a wine store, unsure of what to buy for a spur-of-the-moment host bottle then d’Arenberg is your go-to wine. The winery makes a bunch of different wines but most have the red/yellow stripe on the label which makes them easy to identify. Quality and consistency come to mind with this brand.
Dark purple in the glass, it comes off the blocks with blueberry, plum and a hint of oak. On the initial palate, I was getting licorice and eucalyptus in addition to the fruitiness. Great acidity kept the wine on track and the tannic structure is built to last. On the back end, vanilla comes to mind as does blackberry pie. Drinking well now, it will cellar for another 10-15 years easily. We drank this with Tenderloins and salad, I cannot think of a better combination. Pricey at $35+, it scores well at 92 in my books and has to be a 4 star effort. Treat yourself to some really good Shiraz this summer and try a d’Arenberg. Salut…" -CasparNick's blog.
