著名澳洲酒莊d'Arenberg最早可以追溯到1890年，屬一間百年澳洲老酒莊，其d'Arry掌舵人成功地將酒莊塑造成高品質的形象，在知名的酒展中屢獲佳績。其酒莊出產的葡萄酒都是以Basket press方法去製造葡萄酒(Basket Press意思是指採用傳統的古董榨汁機去榨壓葡萄)。其第四代傳人Chester Osborn更在2005年，更獲選成為The Wine Advocate的「年度釀酒大師」，並且得到 Robert Parker 的熱情盛讚，酒廠的聲勢如日中天，成為世上最受歡迎的酒廠之一。其旗艦酒款會叫做「Dead Arm」，是因為其老樹藤容易受到霉菌感染，因此一致被認為已經一隻手或腳已經踏進墳墓(死亡的意思)，不過經過莊主悉心的照顧，這些老樹藤不但沒有死亡，種植出來的果實反而更加濃郁。
94 pts Decanter (Sarah Ahmed):
"A very dry but mild growing season with many cool nights has produced a lifted Shiraz of good intensity and detail. Bright blackberry fruit is riven with red liquorice and fennel seed spice plus dried rose top notes. Plentiful but fine minerally, earthy tannins lend structure and length. For now, wearing its alcohol very well – highly promising. Harvested 6 March to 8 April."
91 pts Wine Enthusiast:
The relatively cool hand of the 2017 vintage has added touches of freshness and elegance to many classically rich, powerful wines like this one. Postcard McLaren Vale notes of plums, blackberries, peppery, earthy spices and a little well-placed oak lead the way. The distinction is in the palate, where muscular, highly textural, rustic tannins are balanced by bright, juicy fruit. Not for fans of cushy, soft-around-the-middle Shiraz, but tannin-craving red lovers will find much enjoyment.
