A special release celebrating the 100th year anniversary of the planting of this Mourvèdre vineyard.
d’Arenberg, The Twenty Eight Road, Mourvèdre, McLaren Vale, 2018
Offers a fine yin/yang of earthy, savoury notes and bright red fruits. Iodine, blue metal, show polish and squid ink with blueberry, plum jam and raspberry all wrapped in garden herb blossom and chocolatey oak. Fine, tight grainy tannins and a surprising amount of acidity in this medium framed edition. Rustic and protein/cheese rind richness, this is darkly unique old vine edition and will easily develop over the next 10 years.
Rating: 18.25/20 (93/100)
