The 'Ironstone Pressings' G.S.M.

  • Details

    Most of McLaren Vale's acclaimed and historic vineyards are impregnated with ancient, decomposed laterite granite known as ironstone. Its extraordinary rusty redbrown colour is derived from the iron oxides present in the stone. The larger pieces were cleared from the vineyards in the late 1880's and utilised in many of the buildings at d'Arenberg, most notably the old stables.

     

    A unique vintage that offers up a more spicy, elegant, refined rendition of The Ironstone Pressings Grenache Shiraz Mourvèdre. Layers of complexity evolve on the nose over time. Spice, earth and cured meats slowly give way to the sweetness of blueberry, boysenberry and plum. The palate is rounded and silky with a fine powdery tannin finish.
