  • Founded in 1912, d'Arenberg is one of the the most significant wineries in McLaren Vale. "Dead Arm" is 100% Shiraz and the name of this wine explains its potential: "Dead Arm" is a vine disease by fungus. Often vines affected are severely pruned or replanted. One half, or an ‘arm’ of the vine slowly becomes reduced to dead wood - lifeless and brittle. But the grapes on the other side, while low yielding, display amazing intensity.

"The 1998 The Dead Arm Shiraz (from a vineyard planted prior to 1890) is outrageously rich, spectacular stuff, the likes of which only Australia seems capable of making. Whiners may complain that it is too big, too rich, too flavorful, and too damn good, but this opaque purple-colored offering is loaded with blackberry liqueur, smoke, charcoal, pepper, cassis, and licorice. Unctuously-textured and full-bodied, but neither heavy nor overbearing, the wine's sweet tannin and low acidity are hidden in the cascade of fruit and glycerin that melt on the palate. This riveting, compelling effort can be drunk now, but promises to age well for two decades or more." (Jun 2001)
