Tasting Note

The heady aroma is both powerful and pretty with notes of fennel, purple flowers and blossom mingling with ripe, varietal purple fruits and black pepper. The oak is hardly evident which allows fruit and soil complexities to emerge with edges of rhubarb and red mulberry and savoury characters of dried herbs, game and spice. The palate opens with anise, black pepper, graphite and restrained dark cherries before it gives way to seductive mulberry, plum, liquorice and spice. It has great power, depth and length with very vibrant, gritty fruit tannins providing immense structure. Notes of anise and spice linger for a long time after the last sip. The Dead Arm 2008 strikes a rare balance of power, complexity and finesse with impressive structure that will reward those with patience to cellar it.

Winemaker

2008 is a tale of two vintages for red wines
in McLaren Vale. Winter rain ensured the
soil reached filled capacity and set the vines
up perfectly with healthy balanced
canopies. A normal spring and an
unseasonably cool January and February
meant most vines remained stress free.
Flavour ripeness was achieved at
reasonably low sugar levels and high natural
acidity for early picked parcels. A sustained
heat wave in early March accelerated
ripeness and picking, resulting in riper in
some wines. However The Dead Arm only
receives the finest parcels, most of which
were picked before the heatwave, therefore
reflecting the best part of the 2008 vintage.

Winemaking

Small batches of grapes are crushed gently 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 and old American oak barriques to complete fermentation. The barrel ferments are aged on lees, and there is no racking until final blending. The wine does not undertake fining or filtration prior to bottling, which may result in a harmless deposit in or adhering to the bottle.
