 TASTING NOTE

A fun wine laden with tropical fruits and just a whiff of fresh cut grass on the nose.
Again, tropical passionfruit and gooseberry flavours dominate the palate, with a herbal twist reminiscent of crunchy snow peas.
Lively acid makes this wine very refreshing and delicate musk like flavours linger making this wine extremely moreish.

94% Sauvignon Blanc
6% Roussanne

12.7% abv

d’Arenberg is one of the most significant wineries in McLaren Vale. Founded in 1912 by Joseph Osborn, fourth generation, Chester Osbourn 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.
