2005 d’Arenburg The Dead Arm Shiraz

d'Arenburg The Dead Arm ShirazOn 10 April 2010, this bottle was taken to dinner at a very good Thai restaurant in Canberra where the food is innovative and top quality.

It was allowed to stand for about 1 hour and when poured its colour was dark purple/black with aromas of spice, smoke and berries. It is a full-bodied wine with a pleasing earthy finish and for many years it will no doubt continue to develop even further if cellared . It again proved that a good quality red can accompany any food.

A top red wine from South Australia which I would certainly look for again.
