85% Shiraz, 15% Other Red Varieties


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.

Well made and wonderfully named, you could well fall in love with The Love Grass Shiraz. In typical d'Arenberg style this has so much going on yet it is all wrapped up in an incredibly easy package. Polished but with a rustic bent that just adds to its appeal. 85% Shiraz with a mix of other varieties. 


Winery notes (2017 Vintage)
"Lovegrass is a weed that grows in the vineyards and its sticky flowers affectionately attach themselves to vineyard workers’ socks. This Shiraz will linger with you in the same way that the flowers do!

Super lifted spice, blackcurrant and blackberry. There's an underlying dark fruit pastille, with liquorice and beef stock flavours that contrast some slight herbal notes. A medium bodied shiraz with incredible concentration and length. This is a serious wine that is also quite accessible in its youth.

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."​

93/100 James Halliday's Wine Companion 2018 (2015 Vintage)
"A mix of hand and machine picking, crushed and destemmed, 2-3 weeks on skins, matured for 22 months in French and American oak (10% new). In the context of d'Arenberg's Shirazs, medium-bodied and intensely regional, with swathes of dark chocolate wrapping themselves around the blackberry fruit at the heart of the wine. Great value for lovers of McLaren Vale shiraz with serious regional intent.​"


Sue Courtney, wineoftheweek.com, August 2018 (2015 Vintage)
"Inky crimson black. Intense aromas of dark smoky cedar, mint, blackberry and woody herbs. A profoundly savoury wine with earth, graphite and coal – a wine that evokes a warm winter fire toasting marshmallows over the embers – the sensual brooding savouriness lifted by juicy black plums, mulberries and cherries with a smattering of pepper and black liquorice while refreshing underlying acidity balances out the jammy sweetness on the deliciously long mouthfilling finish."
