d'Arenberg 2008 The Stump Jump Shiraz (Australia)
I had the choice between something complex or something simple, now not to down play this d'Arenberg, but it is a fairly simple wine, delicious but simple. The nose is floral, perfumed and blackberry fruit; the palate isn't much more complicated than that, a little chocolate, a little black fruit and some floral-like notes. Pleasant and easy drinking. For a Sunday night what could be better.
