D'Arenberg Rousanne Money Spider 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

The red Rhone varieties, Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvèdre have thrived in McLaren Vale for over a century. Believing that white Rhone varieties would have the same affinity with the region’s climate and soil, d’Aren-berg planted Viognier, Marsanne and Roussanne in the mid 1990s. The nose is floral and expressive with orange blossom and honeysuckle alongside exotic tropical flavours of paw paw and fig, with a hint of gingerbread in the background. Initially the palate is fresh and tight with lemon and lime characters dominating. It opens to ripe apple, white nectarine stone and creamy pine nuts, filling the mouth with complexity. The palate has good weight with lively acidity and mineral notes lingering. With some bottle age it will open up and reveal further complexity and will cellar well for the next 4 to 6 years.

Crisp rich citrus fruit on the nose. Intense but fresh fruit in the mouth. Has a depth and complexity that could be mistaken for Rhone.
