Wine Description

Dead Arm is a vine disease caused by the fungus Eutypa Lata that randomly affects vineyards all over the world. Often vines affected are severely pruned or replanted. One half, or an ‘arm’ of the vine slowly becomes reduced to dead wood. That side may be lifeless and brittle, but the grapes on the other side, while low yielding, display amazing intensity.

    Full-bodied, spicy and rich with cinnamon, chocolate and earthy tones really coming to the fore, perfectly complementing the immense backbone of ripe red fruit.
