d’Arenberg The Money Spider and The High Trellis in a Double Pine Box
A special gift of two exceptional wines. Presented in a double pine box. Arguably the most exotic white wine in the d’Arenberg stable, the complexity we see in the Money Spider Roussanne is purely a result of fruit expression, as this wine spends no time in oak.The nose exhibiting a whole array of characters from stone fruits and tropical notes through to nuttiness and an ever so delicate hint of Indian spice.The palate is robust! A luscious mix of pulpy fruit, green mango and papaya. These full flavours gently give way to honey blossom nuances and savoury pistachio notes which linger to a very long finish, adding refinement to the palate. This will pair particularly well with antipasto plates, fatty fish and white meat dishes. The High Trellis.The nose is fresh and lifted, full of violets and blackcurrants mixing with leafy aromatics and violets. The oak supplies a touch of cedar adding complexity with the typical soulful earthiness of d’Arenberg reds.The palate is textured and lithe, coated by lacy tannins with a core of cassis, licorice and plum fruit mixed with earth, graphite and a mineral tail. It’s well weighted, fresh and balanced, inviting now or will reward the patient.Like all d’Arenberg wines, decanting will help this wine show its best, it will age gracefully for up to ten years if cellared carefully.
