The Ironstone Pressings 2008 - 6 Pack

The Story Behind The Name

Most of McLaren Vale's acclaimed and historic vineyards are impregnated with ancient, decomposed laterite granite known as ironstone. Its extraordinary rusty redbrown colour is derived from the iron oxides present in the stone. The larger pieces were cleared from the vineyards in the late 1880's and utilised in any of the buildings at d'Arenberg, most notably the old stables.
