The Sticks and Stones Tempranillo Grenache Blend

  • The inspiration for this name comes from the age-old proverb; 'sticks and stones may break my bones but names will never hurt me'. The unusual and quirky names of d'Arenberg's range of wines has never done the winery any harm.


    A very intense dark purple appearance. What first seems to be very brooding and austere, opens up with a lifted beautiful bouquet. That must be thanks to the higher proportion of Grenache this year. Some tomato leaves. The palate has more of your red fruits, cherry tomatoes, black cherries, dark chocolate – but it’s still fresh! Spices, cardamom, toasted cedar. The longer we look at it, we start to see some cured deli meats appear. A full bodied red with dusty, earthy tannins.
