Keen to produce d'Arenberg's first white in the late 1950's, d'Arry Osborn needed no
convincing that it should be made from Riesling. Inspired by his friend and
neighbor, Cud Kay of Amery Vineyards, d'Arry finally released d'Arenberg's first
vintage of Riesling in the late 1960's. Another neighbor, Jack Neil, inadvertently
helped d'Arry to decide in which years it was best to make d'Arenberg's Riesling. The
Neil's dam runs up against d'Arenberg's Riesling block and a dry summer always
meant a "Dry Dam", which results in concentrated Riesling grapes brimming with
flavor and well balanced acidity. It was not long before d'Arry discovered that the best Rieslings were Dry Dam Rieslings.

finishes with fresh crisp acidity. Over time the color will take on a deeper
golden appearance and the fruit intensity will develop into a richer honeysuckle,
orange peel, glace fruit and tea aromas.

A century on, the estate has grown to 345 acres, and the mantle now rests with fourth...Read More About d'Arenberg

In McLaren Vale, there are vines as far as the eye can see. As in other parts of...Read More About McLaren Vale
The Riesling grape is happiest in a cooler climate, one that fosters its slow
and steady ripening. Often assumed to be the producer of only sweet wines, Riesling
is a fascinating grape of many faces. From bone dry to lusciously sweet, this
variety is delicious at any sugar level with its intense aromas and steely acidity.
