Description

This is a complex and unique wine that provides immense interest as both a young and a mature wine. Notes of flowers, pine needle, lemon and cooked apple with a linear citrus acidity. The nose is floral and expressive with orange blossom and honeysuckle alongside exotic tropical flavours, fig, and hints of gingerbread in the background. The palate is fresh, with lemon and lime characters dominating. It opens to ripe apple, white nectarine stone and creamy pine nuts filling the mouth with complexity. Roussanne is the grape variety used to make this wine. It is quite an unusual grape, more often grown in the Rhône valley of France than Australia. It has fresh flavours of peach, lemon, honeysuckle and almond. d’Arenberg is one of the most significant wineries in McLaren Vale. Founded in 1912 by Joseph Osborn, fourth generation, Chester Osborn took over the reins as Chief Winemaker in 1984. The last decade has seen Chester develop a range of white wines every bit as individual and thrilling as the red Rhone varieties with which the company made its name. There is method to his madness (and his shirts!) and no one knows their soils and vines better than Chester. Chester works with individual parcels of fruit that display different flavour profiles that are influenced by the unique soil characteristics and meso-climates of the vineyards. Each parcel is picked and vinified separately to highlight the individual characters that contribute complexity to the final blend. Chester’s philosophy is to make wines that have great fragrance, fruit palate texture and length. The finish of the wine must have a natural, fine balance of acidity and a complex structure of tannins. Food Recommendations:- White Fish e.g. Cod, Pollack, Dover Sole,Lobster,Duck
