d'Arenberg-The Dead Arm-Shiraz-2001-750mL

Producer: d'Arenberg
SKU: 103
Delivery date: Dispatch within 1-3 day's

Upon release, ‘The Dead Arm’ Shiraz has a vivid, young, dense, purple-red colour. Very intense aromas with a complex combination of fragrant spices and violets, dark cherry, blackberry and blueberry, are made more complex with great liquorice, pepper and integrated svelte of boot-polish like characters. The taste is rich, gutsy and virile, with attacking spice, dark liquorice, cherry, blackberry, plum and dried black olive. The level of fruit weight masks the framework of oak tannins; however, the mineral fruit grittiness is balanced with a very long fruit-fragrant, persistent spice will yield a wine of great ageing power.

98/100
The Wine Advocate
Readers should be on the look out for the 2001 The Dead Arm Shiraz, one of the greatest examples of this cuvee. Its dense black/purple color is accompanied by celestial aromas of melted licorice, graphite, blackberries, cassis, incense, anise, and toasty oak. Fabulously concentrated, with great purity, an unctuous, viscous texture, and an amazingly long, 60-second plus finish.
WA, Robert Parker Jr. Issue: #148



93/100
Wine Companion
Complex, rich licorice and blackberry aromas; palate crammed with opulent, ripe fruit flavour.
, James Halliday Issue: Oct 2003



88/100
Wine Spectator
Dense and distinctive for its spicy, licorice-scented black cherry and berry flavors, solid at the center but it feels tightly wound and unwilling to open up. Maybe with time, but this doesn't show the depth and length Dead Arm usually achieves. Tasted four times, with bottle variation.
WS, Harvey Steiman Issue: 2004



16/20
Jancis Robinson
Thick and dark crimson. Very sweet, medicinal nose - syrupy. Big, full-on wine with extremely assertive acidity and tannin. This, I feel, is a trial rather than a pleasure to drink. Maybe it will soften but, given how young most Australian wines are drunk, why not make it more approachable early?

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.

Two Hands-Lily's Garden-Shiraz-2005-1.5L

Typical of our McLaren Vale style, the 2005 shows delicious distinctive mocha, chocolate and sweet plum characters. Backed by a lush, plush mouthfeel and oodles of juicy ripe fruit laced with an underlying black pepper spice and a silky tight tannin structure. But don’t be deceived this is a serious wine with serious aspirations!
