Food Pairings for D'Arenberg White Rhone Blend Mclaren Vale the Hermit Crab
Floral and citrus on the nose. Low on the acid and full bodied in the mouth. Long grapefruit finish. Nice for a change.
The nose is surprisingly floral and more subtle than previous vintages. The characteristic stone fruits of apricot, peach and nectarine are ever present with sweet spice nuances. The palate has lovely fruit weight and is packed with complexity. It opens with stone fruits and citrus and is underpinned by candied ginger and clove spice. The palate builds nicely with a linear citrus acidity running throughout. The flavours linger with a savoury edge of pistachio nut and a twist of flowery fruit tannins adding textural interest. It’s a complex wine that retains focus and provides versatility when matching to food.
