d'Arenberg The Ironstone Pressings GSM 2010

This is an outstanding GSM release. So soft and delicate.

The fruit here is just humming and each element of the blend stands up and does its bit. I tasted this in a line up of several wines, but I kept coming back here for more. Before long, there was a fair bit missing from the bottle. It's just warming and comforting stuff.

A blend of 70/25/5 respectively, the wine is beautifully balanced and poised. Slick with great fruit, there's some earth, spice, a dash of dried herbs and a lick of sweetness. The happiness lasts forever with a long and lingering finish.

At least two decades ahead of it, GSM freaks will be in heaven. I was!

Excellent.
