d’Arenberg The Ironstone Pressings 2009
The wine starts out slightly confected but then turns into bold blackberries, blood plums and top quality bbq meats sizzling away of the hot plate. The wines from 2009 from McLaren Vale look really good at the moment but will keep for ages in the cellar. Now the savoury characters take a day to emerge from the bottle but the oak has already vanished into the background. Yum.
