Welcome to Tesco Wine by the case.
We hope you enjoy your visit.
The nose is very aromatic, floral and youthful.
The lavender floral notes along with plum and blackberries, pepper, cinnamon, nutmeg and hint of five spice.
The opulent palate is rich and dense with staggering concentration, cocoa, rhubarb, and deep earth add to the savoury complexity.
The chewy tannins are abundant and balanced by the fruit power, building through the palate the tannins provide for a long, vibrant and spicy finish.
The Dead Arm Shiraz 2007 manages to balance focus and complexity superbly .
The structure is muscular and the fruit powerful, yet it maintains a pretty elegance which is allowed to flourish with deft use of oak.
This wine can be drunk now but will further improve if carefully stored for up to 10 + years
Since 1912 the Osborn family have grown grapes and made wine in the picturesque surrounds of McLaren Vale. Today fourth generation family member Chester Osborn is at the winemaking helm, making distinctive wines using traditional methods in the winery and the vineyard.

McLaren Vale wines are distinguished by their ripeness and elegance. It excels at producing Shiraz, Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay. The soils of McLaren Vale vary greatly and are very randomly distributed because the area is made up of glacial deposits, beach sand and limestone. Vines are planted on a wide variety of soils including podsolic soils of low fertility, fertile red-brown earths, terra rossa, rendzina, soldolic and dark cracking soils. McLaren Vale's climate is of the Mediterranean type: warm dry summers and cool wet winters, with low relative humidity and relatively high evaporation. In McLaren Vale, the risk of rainfall or frost during the harvest period is rare and this is one of the reasons why the region is such a marvellously predictable place to grow grapes and make premium wines.
