  1. 2013 The Dry Dam Riesling, d'Arenberg

    Jasmine and orange blossom, along with lemon and lime characters leap from the glass.
    The sugar-acid balance from this fine vintage is unparalleled. While both are present, they manage to meld together creating a mouth-watering yet supple sherbet character, which finishes dry and mineral, not cloying in the slightest.

  2. 2013 Hand Picked Cabernet Malbec Rosé, Skillogalee

    The wine shows fresh raspberry and cranberry on the nose. The palate is fresh and lively, held together by a fine structure of natural acid and fine tannin balance.

  3. 2005 Vintage Fortified Shiraz, d'Arenberg

    The wine opens to lush aromas of fruitcake, spice and plum pudding, topped off with melted butter and brandy snaps on the side. Its a rich and heady mix, embracing and warming, just waiting for the chill of night and an open fire. The fine, low-strength brandy spirit plays a wonderful supporting role - selected for its 'tails' character, all juniper berries, spice and fruit and 'hearts' - roses and apricots and brings warmth and richness to the wine.The palate is dense and layered, the tannins chewy and mouthfilling interwoven with rich, ripe dark fruits - figs, plums, star anise, licorice, cloves and candied citrus peel. There's line and length from the acid and tannin backbone, leaving the finish long, clean and fresh. This wine will build further complexing characters as it ages and will reward extended cellaring.

  4. 2011 The Stump Jump Cabernet Sauvignon, d'Arenberg

    Sweet crème de cassis and mulberry, aromatic violets with a twist of blackcurrant leaf, if you were in any doubt as to the wines varietal provenance. Shows beautifully elegant on the palate but still offers plenty of dark, sweet fruits. The mint and leafy notes work as a nice counter point to the more luscious mulberry fruit. The cedary notes and fine grained tannin draw the wine to a long and focused finish. Primary, balanced and vibrant in youth, this wine is as appealing now as it will no doubt be in 3-5 years.

  5. NV Liqueur Muscat, Skillogalee

    This shows nutty, raisin and apricot flavours, and is full and sweet enough to match well with the sweetest desserts (even chocolate!).

  6. 2009 The Last Ditch Viognier, d'Arenberg

    The nose is a heady mix of exotic aromas. White peach and nectarine are infused with candied ginger, spice and honey blossoms.
    The palate also displays white stone fruits and apricots mixed with florals, spices and savoury notes.
    Whilst typically rich and luscious, the mouthfeel is balanced out by a lovely, flowery, nutty tannin that adds both length and focus.

  7. 2010 Basket Pressed Shiraz, Skillogalee

    This Shiraz is another dark, rich wine in the Skillogalee tradition, with intense colour and powerful, warm aromas and flavours. On the nose and the palate there are berryfruit and plum characters and hints of eucalyptus or mint can sometimes be found. Tannin structure is fine but firm and there is a good level of natural acidity.

  8. 2010 d'Arry's Original Shiraz Grenache, d'Arenberg

    This wine displays a level of finesse and freshness that we don’t always encounter in other vintages of the same wine. In a somewhat surprising contrast to this, the wine also displays a dense and varied array of fruit characters, from bright lifted purple plums and rhubarb through to more spice and herbal notes such as sage and cardamom, into even more complex earthy flavours of beetroot and soot.
    These flavours are perfectly supported by a frame of fine, minerally tannins that add a subtle grip and enticingly long finish.

  9. 2010 Stickleback Red, Heartland

    Fragrant, spicy, juicy and full bodied. A rich violet / purple colour. Chocolate spice and black fruit characters of cherry and plum on the palate, with a vibrant blackcurrant lift. The Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon gives the wine a rich, savoury character. Dolcetto enhances the blend, offering firm tannins to the mix. Lagrein contributes spiciness and a fresh, crisp acid profile, enhancing the wine's structure.

  10. 2012 The Olive Grove Chardonnay, Originals, d'Arenberg

    The wine displays lovely peach and creamy notes, with an oyster shell minerality that runs through the palate.
    Full flavoured and textured but with a vibrant acidity and a long lingering finish, this wine delivers a plethora of stone fruit, blossoms and savoury notes.
    The oak influence is minimal allowing the true flavours of the fruit to shine.
