The 2020 d'arry's Original vintage release is a Shiraz Grenache blend with an amazing ruby colour. Floral aromas with black and red fruits. On the palate there are notes of red berries and fresh red cranberries. Hints of pomegranate and rhubarb make for a nice silky mouth coating flavour profile. There’s a hint of ripe green tomato bush, green capsicum, and dragon fruit. Fine and round tannins. Very well balanced with a lifted vibrancy. Amazing length and a fresh finish. Classic d’Arenberg.

Winery & Vintage Info

This wine was known as 'Burgundy' until 1993, when it was renamed d'Arry's Original in honour of third generation family member Francis d'Arenberg Osborn, universally known as d'Arry, in honour of his lifelong services to the wine industry.

d'Arenberg d'Arry's Original Shiraz Grenache 2019 is made with 65% Grenache & 35% Shiraz from McLaren Vale.

Winter and Spring rains were quite good which meant vigour was high. October and November saw some cooler weather which made flowering and set spread out over a long period with an intense short heat wave in the middle of set reducing the crop significantly. A nice rain on the 1st of February set the vines up well and mild to cool, dry, weather prevailed. A few slightly warmer nights in the later part of ripening helped the last sugar push. Yields were down significantly, the lowest in memory, however, quality is exceptional. Some of the best wines seen for years. Great colour, fruit characters, flavours and length.

Small batches of grapes are gently crushed and then transferred to five tonne headed down open fermenters. These batches remain separate until final blending. Foot treading is undertaken two thirds of the way through fermentation. The wine is then basket pressed and transferred to a mixture of new and used French oak barriques to complete fermentation. The barrel ferments are aged on lees, and there is no racking until final blending. This wine does not undertake fining or filtration prior to bottling.
