D'Arenberg 2016 The Ironstone Pressings G-S-M (McLaren Vale)

This vintage of this quintessential South Aussie blend leans heavily on Grenache, with 25% Shiraz and 5% Mourvèdre. Brambly blackberry, olive, sap and toasty, vanillin oak notes lead on the rich, heady nose. Rustic and fairly straightforward for a premium-priced wine, it has a rich palate dominated by muscular, drying and rather aggressive tannins that feel like sandpaper on the tongue. Those brambly, savory flavors are there, too, flowing through to the finish. Drink now–2025. Christina Pickard
