Features & Specifications:
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.
Chester Osborn, the remarkable person behind this enormous array of both impeccably high quality and value-priced wines, deserves considerable accolades for what he is able to achieve at all price ranges. If you love Australian wines, d’Arenberg is a winery to seek out as these offerings all possess abundant soul as well as character. In short, the accolades that proprietor/winemaker Chester Osborn receives not only from The Wine Advocate, but virtually everybody in the wine world, are all well deserved.
Appears bright cherry red with a darker plum coloured core. The nose shows licorice and dark fruits, toasty oak with a chocolatey rum & raisin aroma. The entry to the palate is soft with a rich solid palate that is typically McLaren Vale, with blackcurrant and stewed plum flavours. The structure is typical of Fox Creek showing ripe fruit tannin with integrated oak complexity.
Delicate garnet in colour, this Pinot Noir shows red cherry and raspberry aromatics, with layers of sweet spices and red fruits. The palate reveals further dark cherry and kirsch flavours. Pure Pinot Noir characters are supported by complex cinnamon and nutmeg spice flavours. Oak is seamlessly woven into the wine, with hints of char and subtle vanillin building on the spice profile in the fruit. Fine, supple tannins support the delicate acidity giving the wine great length of flavour. Our Pinot Noir is an expression of Yarra Valley Pinot Noir in a cooler year, with delicate and pure flavours, length of palate and finesse.
A perfume of grilled steak intermixed with blackberries, new saddle leather, earth, pepper, and melted licorice rises from this awesome red. With great power, richness, and no hard edges, it is still young and primary, but should hit its peak in 3-7 years, and last for two decades or more.
The fruit for Gregor Shiraz is sourced from Shiraz vines planted in 1988 on our home block high in the Barossa Ranges. The soils are rocky, yellow podzolic matter over clays.
The fruit is handpicked before being placed on racks and semi dried in the style of the famous Amarone wines of Italy. The grapes are then naturally fermented in open vats before being aged in new French Oak 1350L vats and puncheons for a period of 24 months. Bottled unfiltered.
Tasting notes: Wonderfully rich textured with a smooth character and good concentration. Complex red fruits with some spiciness. A very interesting wine.
Multi layered concentration of very rich, juicy, full-bodied black-berried fruits combined with chocolate, tar, pepper, liquorice, smoky oak and chewy robust tannins.
An intensely complex mouthful of Shiraz fruit with a finish that lingers and lingers. The rich fruit carries the 15.5% alc/vol and we would see this Block 6 developing into a great example of old vine Shiraz with 6 years plus in a good cellar.
The 2015 Sauvignon Blanc has great aromatic notes of passionfruit with a punchy herbaceousness. The palate is clean and crisp with a bright zippy finish. Great served alongside natural oysters. Or according to Anita, this is a great wine to have with fresh Crayfish (Southern Rock Lobster) served with a simple seafood sauce and white bread!
Inaugural release of our Rose! Made from Shiraz & Cabernet Sauvignon sourced from the Wangolina vineyard in Mt Benson. Vibrant in colour and deliciously crisp on the palate with a balance of steely acidity and a hint of sweetness. The perfect Sunday wine - fun, fresh and delicious. Definitely going to be our new fave for this Summer at Wangolina.
Equally as enjoyable as an aperitif as it is with dessert, the 2013 Bothie displays beautifully fragrant aromas of fresh pine/lime, melon and lychee accompanied by extraordinary floral notes. The subtle, clean flavours of lemon sorbet, lemon tart and orange rind balance perfectly with the residual sugar creating a full, lush, round palate.
On a highland trail the place to stop and rest when weary is known as a Bothie. This sweeter styled wine exhibits lifted fruit aromatics characteristic of its origin.
A sweet wine at Torbreck was always going to be something slightly different and we've been tinkering away at it since 2001. Muscat Blanc a petit grains is harvested in several stages to achieve different levels of ripeness, creating a myriad of potential flavours. A small amount of spirit is added to the fermenting wine to arrest the yeasts against further activity and raise the alcohol level to around 14 percent.
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.

Spice crusted barbecued butterflied leg of lamb, linguine pasta with mushrooms and caramelised onions.
Strong bright rim with a mid-deep red core.
The hints of blackcurrant and blackberry are typical characters of this variety. Typically McLaren Vale produces a dark, spicy chocolate character in Cabernet and this is evident. However, this wine has fascinating aromas of mint, leather and dark cherries. The oak shows when the wine is first poured, but with a little time in the glass yields to give a subtle cinnamon, char and cherry combination.
As a young wine, the palate is a little tight. The cherry and chocolate come through as does a blackberry fruit character. The tannin and acidity are firm, but balanced for a wine that will drink well when young, preferably with food. It will develop further complexity with cellaring.
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.
