The Love Grass as part of the “Organics” range with d’Arry’s unique coat of arms on the label. The fruit all comes from Biodynamic and Certified Organic vineyards. Also made Vegan friendly if that’s important to you.
d’Arenberg, The Love Grass, Shiraz, McLaren Vale, 2018
In the dark end of the spectrum: damp violet flowers, earthy beets, blackberry paste, red jubes and creosote. Full bore, coarse and chewy feel to the tannins that underpin a hard charcoal/graphite line. Structure of elbows and shoulders and perfect for those that are up for a fight, at least in the short term.
Rating: 17.5/20 (90/100)
