THE ART OF BEING DIFFERENT : A wild grass, the Love Grass, often grows in the vineyards surrounding the d‘Arenberg winery. During vintage, the sticky, Velcro-like, long stemmed flowers of the Love Grass affectionately attach themselves to the vineyard workers’ socks. This Shiraz will also linger with you and, as such, the family thought it fitting to name this wine ‘The Love Grass.’
WINEMAKING: Small batches of grapes are gently crushed and then transferred to open fermenters. Foot treading is undertaken two thirds of the way through fermentation, the wine is basket pressed and then aged in French oak for up to 18 months.
TASTING NOTES: Quite a lifted nose, with intense aromas of mulberry, plum and graphite. The palate is round and delicious with more mulberry and more plum. The wine finishes quite long, with moderate acidity and loads of fine, spicy tannin.
