D'Arenberg 2014 The Derelict Vineyard Grenache (McLaren Vale)

This wine is held back before release longer than most Aussie reds. With five years of bottle age to date, it still shows Winemaker Chester Osborn's characteristic affinity to structure and power over plushness. While the brambly plum and raspberry fruit still feels ripe, it's caught up in a web of black pepper, cedar and savory tones. These earthy, savory nuances carry through to the palate, which is blanketed in tight-grained tannins, with juicy fruit peeping through the cracks. Christina Pickard
