D'Arenberg the Noble Mud Pie Viognier-Pinot Gris-Marsanne White Blend Adelaide 2008

Member Review by penguinoid:

Intensely sweet, but backed up with enough complexity and a certain amount of sharpness/acidity so that it does not all fall apart. Nose and taste both strongly dominated by candied apricots. Superb with roquefort cheese!

d’Arenberg has developed an enviable reputation with their range of idiosyncratic wines. From the Stump Jumps through to the highly regarded Icons, these wines offer value, individuality and a true taste of McLaren Vale. The Icons The Ironstone Pressings, The Coppermine Road, The Dead Arm Shiraz The Icons are the most powerful and concentrated of d’Arenberg’s wines. Comprising of the Dead Arm, the Coppermine Road and the Ironstone Pressings, this range represents the pinnacle of d’Arenberg’s efforts. Century old, low-yielding vines produce intensely flavored fruit which is traditionally vinified and undergoes rigorous barrel-selection prior to classification.

Extremely sweet and delicious. Not too thick or syrupy like some other dessert wines. Smells like sweet corn and caramel. I had this after it was opened for months, and it's still great!

Finally found a dessert wine that my wife likes; stil very sweet, but not dominated by the raisiny, complex flavors that often seem to be present with dessert wines affected by the noble rot. Will defininitely be buying more, hopefully to see what additional complexity a little bottle aging brings.

Stunning. A dessert in itself. On the nose it's sweet stewed apple and rhubarb with big fat sultanas and then in the mouth it develops into sugary apricots and the finish is burnt toffee that lasts for a minute. And only £11 in Oddbins. So so happy!
