"Lovegrass is a weed that grows in the vineyards and its sticky flowers affectionately attach themselves to vineyard workers socks" and that's how this d'Arenberg 2014 Shiraz from McLaren got its name!
Interesting this wine is also 'foot trod & basket pressed'. We matched this beauty up with hotdog night and between you and me, it went awesomely with the BBQ sauce! Both the VinoFood Merlot BBQ sauce pictured here and Sweet Baby Rays (a fave of Mr. Spittoon's) were a wonderful match.
And the wine... Deep shiny garnet colour on the eye. On the nose I picked up notes of spice, smoked meat, berries, red liquorice and some oak. In the mouth it's full of dark black fruits and lingering tannins. It really does linger the same way the Lovegrass flowers do 😜
This bottle is part of the Wine Selectors 'Australian Shiraz Showcase' to celebrate the Australian First Families of Wine and perhaps Australia's premier grape variety 🤘
