Chester d’Arenberg Osborn continues his family estates traditional, hand-crafted wines - established by his great-grandfather Joseph Osborn in 1912 - in this classic estate in the McLaren Vale. His grape growing practices include minimal inputs and no fertilisation, cultivation and irrigation wherever possible, therefore achieving natural soil flavours with very low yields. The winemaking processes of the past have been maintained, capturing the unique small-batch character of the wines and the true flavour of the McLaren Vale region. All grapes, red and white, are basket-pressed. The reds are still traditionally fermented with the grape skins (caps) submerged in open wax-lined concrete fermenters utilising the age-old technique of foot-treading.
What The Critics Say
96/100 Halliday's Wine Companion, James Halliday
"This is a particularly good Dead Arm, its alcohol miraculously the same as the '14, but however that may be, it has an elegance to its mouthfeel and lingering finish." Drink by 2045
