91pointsD'Arenberg 2016 The Twenty Eight Road Mourvèdre (McLaren Vale)

D'Arenberg's big reds can often be a bargain, especially compared with some of the Barossa blockbusters. This 100% Mourverdré (from the family's over 100-year-old bush vines) is an excellent example of value. Simultaneously classic McLaren Vale and classic d'Arenberg, this wine bursts from the glass with cherries, cedar, mint chocolate, cola and heaps of earthy spice. The fleshy tangy fruit on the palate is gripped by powerful, dusty tannins. This big but balanced wine needs a decanter and protein now or time in the cellar. Drink now–2029. Christina Pickard
