Wine tasting notes

Powerfully aromatic white, blasting out candied ginger and flowers, with notes of green mango, hay and almond on the palate.

Winery information

D'Arenberg

One of the undisputed kings of Australian Shiraz and Rhone varietals, d'Arenberg has managed to turn individuality into an art form by doing a whole lot of little things differently. The original vineyards were established by Joseph Osborn in 1912 in the McLaren Vale region of South Australia. A century on, the estate has grown to 345 acres, and the mantle now rests with fourth-generation winemaker, Chester Osborn. By maintaining a focus on traditional winemaking and nurturing their old-vine material, the Osborn clan has successfully established themselves as one of the country's leading producers of concentrated wines that are full of character.

Vinification notes

Small batches of grapes are gently crushed and transferred to stainless steel basket presses. Fermentation is long and moderately cool, retaining fresh fruit characters. About 4% underwent wild fermentation for extra complexity. 14% of the Viognier is fermented in aged French and American Oak. Blending occurs only in the final stages of the winemaking process.
