We reckon d'Arenberg are not only the masters of great wine names, but of having some of the best value/quality around. There are no shortcuts taken in the production of any of the wines – low yields, foot trodden, basket pressed all make for seriously good wines.

This was first wine under the d’Arenberg label and first released in 1959. Named "d’Arenberg Burgundy" until 1993, when it became d’Arry’s Original. This is a wine that delivers plenty – This was aptly described it as ‘a ball of deliciousness’ at our d'Arenberg tasting. It has the sweet brown spiciness of Grenache wrapped in the earthy, plummy Shiraz. It is a wine that ‘flows’ through the palate.

Winery notes (2019 Vintage)
"First released in 1993, this wine was renamed d'Arry's Original in honour of third generation family member Francis d'Arenberg Osborn, universally known as d'Arry, to honour his lifelong services to the wine industry.

Small batches of grapes are gently crushed and then transferred to five tonne headed down open fermenters. These batches remain separate until final blending. Foot treading is undertaken two thirds of the way through fermentation. The wine is then basket pressed and transferred to a mixture of new and used French oak barriques to complete fermentation. The barrel ferments are aged on lees, and there is no racking until final blending. This wine does not undertake fining or filtration prior to bottling.

Amazing ruby colour. Quite floral with a fusion of black and red fruits. Red berries and notes of fresh red cranberries. Hints of pomegranate and rhubarb make for a nice silky mouth coating flavour profile. There’s a little hint of ripe green tomato bush, green capsicum, and dragon fruit. Fine and round tannins. Very well balanced with a lifted vibrancy. Amazing length and a fresh finish. Classic d’Arenberg."

91/100 Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front, March 2021 (2018 Vintage)
"This is in good form. Again. It’s buoyant, fruit-filled, fresh-enough and with good meat on its bones. Red berries, violets, some darker notes, almost a ferrous aspect. Liquid violets, almost into vanilla, almost into something sweeter like raspberry. But done well. Balanced well. Value is high."

91/100 James Suckling (2017 Vintage)
"A very attractive array of raspberry-driven aromas with a sleek, drinkable palate. Super fine tannins carry redcurrant, red-plum, raspberry and blueberry flavours in linear mode. Stunning value, like a good Cotes du Rhone. Drink over the next decade."

91/100 Wine Spectator (2017 Vintage) 
"Juicy, plump cherry, blackberry and blueberry flavours mingle with vanilla bean, mocha and nutmeg details in this red. The tannins are firm, and there's a savoury, sanguine note in the background, plus a lingering hint of roasted chestnut. Shiraz and Grenache. Drink now."
