Reviews for 2009 d'Arenberg Blewitt Springs

JH 94
James Halliday - James Halliday, August 2011
Polished and detailed red fruit bouquet with clove and Provençal herbs on display; medium bodied and almost silky in texture with a fine grained tannin and even fruited finish.

Smooth and fleshy with densely packed yet vibrant flavors of raspberry and bitter cherry. Spicy and quite elegant with fine-grained silky tannins and impressive finishing cling. This doesn't want to let go.

And there is... I tasted and reviewed this with the label facing me but without knowing the price tag... No one quite invests in McLaren Vale grenache like D'Arenberg does so you can't blame them for championing it. And there is certainly oodles of well-priced grenache in the D'Arenberg portfolio. But still yowzer. The difference here is the rich essence-like rush of violet-like fragrance and flavour. It makes for a strikingly delicious wine. It's sturdy of tannin and yet pure of fruit with licorice and earth and spice-box notes adding depth to the dance of florals. Put it this way I had a lot of bottles open and this was the one I found hardest to spit. 93+ Points --Campbell Mattinson
