McLaren Vale was planted to Grenache long ago, when pioneers established plots of vine on their homestead farms. Grenache became rather unfashionable towards the middle of the twentieth century, Chester Osborn had the vision to acquire many of these overgrown and abandoned bush vineyards. To the layman's eye, they still look like derelict old sites, but they yield precious harvests of the most outstanding fruit. A concentrated wine with depth and complexity, oozing lozenges of winegum and prettily perfumed purple fruits.
Available by the dozen
Case of 12
$347.00
There are no secrets at d'Arenberg, each grape must be the finest that McLaren Vale can produce and all wines are made by hand, to the most exacting standards under the meticulous scrutiny of Chester Osborn. The aim is to make the most generously proportioned, brilliantly balanced wines, supported by sound structure and just the right amount of oak. Small batches are gently crushed and fermented, basket pressed and filled to a selection of well seasoned French and American barriques for completion, aged on lees, assembled and finished without fining or filtration.
Bright garnet red. Vigorous Grenache perfumes, plums and blueberry, raspberries, an undercurrent of earthyness and game. Full bodied palate, generous over chalky tannins, succulent acidity, lively and mouthwatering, refinement after a term of bottle age, smoothing edges whilst maintaining youthful appeal. The oak is totally integrated and allows the fruit characters to star, will go perfectly with juicy steak or gourmandise game.
