Some years ago, Chester Osborn sought out additional super premium Grenache fruit from
McLaren Vale to meet the high demand for d'Arenberg's Grenache-based wines. Many old
vineyards showed promise, although the vineyards were neglected with weeds and native

by a framework of lively tannins and elevated acidity. This wine is elegant with a wonderful
softness, which is what Grenache is all about.
