Tasting Note

The nose is intensely perfumed, with lychee, gooseberry, grassy and rosehip notes all contributing. The flavour is similar; with an abundance of tropical fruits, lychees and passionfruit, swirling through the palate, highlighted by floral and grassy edges. The wine is fine and long, thanks to vibrant natural acidity, and with a mineral finish.

Would easily contend with any its New Zealand cousins

Winemaking

The fruit for this wine is sourced from the cool climate Adelaide Hills. Small batches of grapes are crushed gently, chilled, and then transferred to stainless steel basket presses. Gentle extraction of the juice is critical in these early stages to retain the delicate fruit characters.
To add complexity and mouthfeel, a small percentage of the wine is partially fermented in aged French oak for two to three weeks.
None of the white wines at d’Arenberg are subject to malolactic fermentation as we aim for the retention of fresh, natural acidity, which is integral to the balance and longevity of the wine.

Food Recomendation

The perfect partner to a variety of Asian-spiced dishes - or if you just want to feel summery.

  • Absolutely gorgeous.

    Absolutely gorgeous, so light and fruity, it has become my favourite for sharing with friends. So glad we were able to chat to D'Arenberg's representative at the shop.
