d'Arenberg The Ironstone Pressings Grenache Shiraz Mourvèdre 2015


d'Arenberg's The Ironstone Pressings is a benchmark GSM from the McLaren Vale region.  The 2015 vintage in the glass here has aromatics that remind of black fruits and cedar, the latter particularly well handled.  The palate is dry, the tannins are firm and the length long.  This wine supports my thesis that grenache (and its blends) represent some of d'Arenberg's (and McLaren Vale's) best wines. Rating: Very Good. Abv: 14.5%. Price: $70. Source: Sample.
