This is intense on the nose with notes of mango fruit, lanolin, flinty notes, white pepper and a bit of diesel, along with some very ripe/overripe apricot fruit. This is just as intense in the mouth and very ripe with mango and apricot fruit dripping all over the palate. This is a bit soft and certainly mouth-filling, but the flavors of overripe fruit are going to be the undoing of this wine. Perhaps it is just in a tough period today, but it’s not appealing to my palate. 78pts

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’Arenberg 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.
