Winemaker's Notes:

The nose is wonderfully aromatic with vibrant tropical fruit, barley sugar and a hint of guava. The palate is equally fresh and lively with zesty citrus characters of lemon, lime and a touch of orange. The Marsanne and Roussanne play a bigger role here with lovely stone fruit and honey characters coming through. This is a crisp and fresh wine with good balance, making it suitable to drink with or without food.

28% Riesling, 27% Sauvignon Blanc, 25% Marsanne, 20% Rousanne

About d'Arenberg:

One of the undisputed kings of Australian Shiraz and Rhone varietals, d'Arenberg has managed to turn individuality into an art form by doing a whole lot of little things differently. The original vineyards were established by Joseph Osborn in 1912 in the McLaren Vale region of South Australia. A century on, the estate has grown to 345 acres, and the mantle now rests with fourth-generation winemaker, Chester Osborn. By maintaining a focus on traditional winemaking and nurturing their old-vine material, the Osborn clan has successfully established themselves as one of the country's leading producers of concentrated wines that are full of character.
