Winemaker Notes

The 2005 Custodian is vibrant with red cherry center and looks fabulous. Upon pouring, fragrant Grenache notes of violets, ripe red-fruit jams, spice, strawberry, cranberry and mulberry characters with flowery, earthy, liquorice, pot-pouri notes developing as the wine opens up. The palate is medium bodied, fleshy with a concentrated array of red berries, dark sweet plums, strawberries and spicy softness. The wine is perfectly balanced between fruit weight, level of concentration, tannins and acidity as your mouth quickly salivates for a second helping. That's Grenache for you.

"Medium garnet colour. Opulent nose of warm raspberries, Chinese five spice and an earthy touch of forest floor. Concentrated flavours fill the palate balanced by medium+ acidity and a medium level of silky tannins. Quite rich and full bodied though well balanced. Long finish. Drink now – 2011." 92 Points

d'Arenberg, McLaren Vale, Australia
2005 The Custodian Grenache
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.
