Winemaker Notes

The aroma is very complex and tight. It is dominated by smoky oak and lees fermentation notes with fruit characters suggesting ripe red apples, grapefruit and cold river pebble mineral notes. The flavors are from the cool-climate spectrum dominated with ripe citrus and minerals mixes with nectarines, green melon rind, roasted pistachios and flower stems.

Background:During the summer, Bearded Dragon Lizards sun themselves in the vineyards and find their way into a load of grapes destined for the winery. Lucky for the lizards, d'Arenberg uses a very gentle Demoisy crusher which allows the lizards to pass through the ordeal unharmed and they are returned back to the bushland next to the winery.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WE 91
Wine Enthusiast
D’Arenberg is better known for its red wines, but this promising effort from the Adelaide Hills is one to watch. Vanilla and custardy notes mark the nose, while the flavors turn toasty and cereal-like, backed by plenty of mixed citrus fruit. It’s not overly rich or ripe, but has long, mouthwatering finish.
RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2007 The Lucky Lizard Chardonnay was barrel-fermented and aged for eight months in French oak, 35% new. It is light straw-colored with a nose redolent of baked Granny Smith apples. Creamy and layered on the palate, it has excellent depth and concentration and should drink well over the next two years.
JH 90
Australian Wine Companion
Tangy grapefruit dominant, plus some stone fruit; subtle oak; has good length and thrust.

d'Arenberg, , Australia
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.

Napa Valley

Cabernet Sauvignon

View all wine

The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
