89pointsD'Arenberg 2015 The Ironstone Pressings G-S-M (McLaren Vale)

When compared to the 2014, this vintage feels primary and even a little simple. Chances are it just needs a few more years in bottle, but for now this almost 50-50 blend of Grenache and Shiraz (with 5% Mourvèdre) oozes plums, raspberry, cola, ground pepper and warm earthy mineral characters, the Shiraz more prominent than the previous vintage. The palate is full figured, balancing plump fruit with spicy oak and chalky drying tannins that add that signature d'Arenberg texture. Drink 2021–2031. Christina Pickard
