95/100
The Wine Advocate
A glorious example of South Australian Shiraz is the 2002 Shiraz Hillside. Made from relatively young vines (8-34 years of age), this flamboyant, pleasant 2002 is impossible to resist. Already rocking and rolling, it has aging potential. A deep plum/ruby/purple hue is followed by glorious aromas of black fruits, flowers, dusty, loamy, truffle-like scents, and a classic combination of pepper and licorice. The wine saturates the palate with a seamless integration of acidity, tannin, and alcohol (15%). The finish is opulent and multilayered.
WA, Robert Parker Jr. Issue: #155



90/100
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Medium ruby. Assertive, high-toned red berry aromas are complemented by anise, coconut, violet and rose.Quite suave in texture, with bright, sweet flavors of raspberry, cherry, violet pastille and candied licorice. There's nice lift and energy to the finish, which shows clear raspberry and cherry flavors that really cling to the palate.
ST, Josh Raynolds Issue: Aug 1 2005



89/100
Wine Companion
Elegant, medium-bodied style; does not show its 15° alcohol, partly due to balancing acidity; savoury, dark fruits.
, James Halliday Issue: Mar 2005



87/100
Wine Spectator
On the crisp side, with an earthy edge to the olive and dried berry flavors, persisting on the lively finish.
WS, Harvey Steiman Issue: 2005

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.

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.
