d'Arenberg-The Ironstone Pressings-Grenache Shiraz Mourvedre-2002-1.5L

Producer: d'Arenberg
SKU: 128
Delivery date: Dispatch within 1-3 day's

With time the full spice, strawberry and liquorice and blackcurrants will develop with fresh pepper tails; at this stage, it is a mean monster with fragrant, gritty, fruit tannins that go on forever.

 

Eventually, the Grenache and Shiraz blossom as rich, sweet, violet-like scents, with spicy based aroma, before malty, sweet, dark chocolate flavours and crunchy, chewy textured black olive, spicy ginger and long fleshy textures. The Mourvedre adds dried herbs and iodine characters that are very persistent, matched with slightly chalky tannins.

 

The hallmark of vigorous, fine piquant tannin and acidity continue to reside with ‘The Ironstone Pressings’ after some considerable time, as have previous vintages since the late 1950’s.

93/100
The Wine Advocate
The 2002 Ironstone Pressings GSM may be the finest example of this cuvee I have yet tasted. A blend of 75% Grenache, 20% Shiraz, and 5% Mourvedre, its deep ruby/purple color is accompanied by an explosive perfume of dried herbs, black fruits, ground pepper, licorice, and old oak. This full-bodied, powerful, opulent blend boasts loads of fruit, wonderfully sweet glycerin, and a long finish with outstanding purity, definition, and structure.

Wine Companion
Deep colour; massive wine with great depth of multi-flavoured black fruits and tannins.

90/100
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Full medium ruby. Very ripe aromas of crushed dark berries and bitter chocolate. A step up in sweetness and texture from the Laughing Magpie. Very concentrated wine with fresh acidity. Also quite young and built to age.
ST, Stephen Tanzer Issue: Aug 1 2004



87/100
Wine Spectator
Firm, nicely packed with jammy blackberry and pepper flavors, lingering nicely against a light grip of tannins on the finish. Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvèdre.

d'Arenberg-The Coppermine Road-Cabernet Sauvignon-2002-750mL

The nose shows intense blackcurrant and cranberry fruit, and the subtle cedary cinnamon spice, barrel-ferment and oak derived aromas, violet and mint scents, as well as liquorice and chocolate smells. Interwined is this wounderful green edge that lifts the wine into a cool climate sepctrum which typifies the cold year. These aromas combine with some cassis, blueberry, and cranberry, with lingering mocha and plumy fruit and are just showing through amongst a long, intense vibrant, gritty fruit tannin finish.

d'Arenberg-The Dead Arm-Shiraz-2002-750mL

The 2002 season was characterised by a cold, wet winter and spring, which produced lower yields with good, thick-skinned berries. The cool and dry summer ripened fruit gradually and a warm, dry autumn allowed the grapes to ripen fully, producing some of the best and most exotic characters seen for many years.

Kaesler-Stonehorse-Shiraz-2003-750mL

The oak is designed to support and add structure to the palate without compromising the drink ability of the wine. They are wines that are made to be enjoyed while in their youth.
