D'Arenberg is a wine producer located in the McLaren Vale sub-region of South Australia. The 60-plus wines in the portfolio are known as much for their quirky names as they are for their quality. The estate was established in 1912 by Joseph Osborn, who initially sold grapes from the vineyards to other wineries in the region. The d'Arenberg winery was built in 1927, and today, the estate is run by fourth-generation Chester Osborn. All d'Arenberg vineyards are certified for organic and biodynamic processes. In the winery, all wines including the whites are basket-pressed after fermentation.
An incredibly fragrant nose full of sweet apricot and gingery spice. The palate is luscious and generous, but has great acid which tightens the wine, adding freshness and a clean crisp finish. Slight pithy feel which builds on the spice notes. Lovely as a fresh stand alone drink that still exhibits some mouthfeel, or equally well adapted to enjoying with a range of foods from freshly shucked oysters through to spicy Thai style dishes.
