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

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.

d'Arenberg, Australia
d'Arenberg Adelaide Hills Winery Image

d'Arenberg is one of the undisputed kings of Australian Shiraz and other Rhone varieties that have historically defined the region. A century on, their vineyards have grown to some 450 acres in McLaren Vale, including Shiraz dating back to d'Arenberg's first plantings in 1912, and nearly one-third of McLaren Vale's old bush-vine Grenache. Fourth generation winemaker, Chester Osborn, recently converted all of the family's vineyards to organics and biodynamics and moved to solar energy in the winery. All the while, in terms of winemaking, not much has changed--all the wines are basket-pressed, the reds foot-trodden during fermentation; everything is done in small batches, leading to an impressive array of bottlings every year, each showing a different facet of McLaren Vale terroir. Having been inducted into Wine & Spirits Magazine's Hall of Fame for earning a place on its Top 100 Wineries nine times, this accolade is a reflection of d'Arenberg's revered reputation worldwide.

Known for opulent red wines with intense power and concentration, McLaren Vale is home to perhaps the most “classic” style of Australian Shiraz. Vinified on its own or in Rhône Blends, these hot-climate wines are deeply colored and high in extract with signature hints of dark chocolate and licorice. Cabernet Sauvignon is also produced in a similar style.

Whites, often made from Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc tend to be opulent and full of tropical, stone and citrus fruit.

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
