I could smell this wine all day. Tasted great, but the nose was what it was all about! Unfortunately I couldnt get drunk from smelling it, so I had to finish the bottle.

The Custodian Grenache 2005 - d'Arenberg: The Custodian Grenache 2005 - Rotwein von d`ArenbergDunkel, rubinrot bis violett präsentiert sich dieser Grenache im Glas. Sein Bukett ist äußerst fruchtig, Aromen von reifer Pflaume, Kirsche, schwarzer Johannisbeere und eine Spur von Himbeere. Bei dem jungen d`Arenberg The Custodian Grenache 2005 schmecken wir Aromen von weißem Pfeffer, Tabak, Zimt und Gewürzen, Pflaumen sowie reifer Brombeere. Mit viel Frucht und Tanninen, jedoch mit einigen Jahren Lagerung (maximal zwanzig), entwickelt dieser Rotwein weitere Aromen wie Maulbeere und Backpflaume. Töne von Biskuit, Kaffe und Leder treten auf. Der Abgang ist sehr lang, weich, vollmundig und von einer feinen Säure.Weingut: d'ArenbergLand: AustralienRegion: McLaren ValeRebsorte: GrenacheInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 14,5Vol.%Säuregehalt: 6 g/lRestsüße: 0,75 g/lEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16 bis 24°C Rotwein > Australien > McLaren Vale

Winemaker's Notes:

The very first wine to bear the famous red stripe contained 50% Grenache and it has been a variety central to d’Arenberg ever since. The d’Arenberg portfolio now contains eight wines with a component of this stunning and charismatic red grape. The nose is complex and inspires intrigue with bright red fruits, lavender, violets and spicy lift. The raft of flavour and complexity remains focused and in the varietal spectrum. The palate is full bodied and darker than previous years with a structural backbone of boney fruit tannin that runs the length of the palate. Plum, raspberry, mulberry and dark cherry open before a second layer of earth, smoked meats, dried herb and cinnamon emerge with a subtle hint of cedar oak emerging on the mid palate. A serious and savoury expression of Grenache, this will age well for up to ten years and will make a great accompaniment to food.
