Winemaker Notes

Upon immediate release, d'Arenberg's The Olive Grove McLaren Vale Chardonnay is a slightly green, brilliant mid-straw colour and typically exhibits extraordinary fresh and lifted melon complex fig and cashew aromas. These are based on smells of apples, limes and pineapples. Vanillin yeast autolysis smells give creamy and bready hints. The youthful palate is clean, direct with limey peach and rockmelon flavours balanced by fresh grapefruit and light butter tastes, before a long elegant melon finish.

d'Arenberg was amongst the pioneers of the variety in the district, releasing our first bottling of Chardonnay in 1984 and we have released a varietal Chardonnay each year since then.

Given time to prove its longevity and not served over chilled, d'Arenberg's The Old Olive Grove McLaren Vale Chardonnay develops intense, complex honey, cashew, fig and soft toast aromas. Typically, butterscotch, light caramel and hints of fresh tobacco are evident too. The fresh structured mid palate retains its texture but opens slowly into generous sweet banana butterscotch flavours with hints of smoky bacon and green olive tastes before finishing with a persistent developed stonefruit and chalky texture as have more than a decade of. previous vintages. A mature d'Arenberg Olive Grove Chardonnay produces a rich, rolling generous and complex finish balanced by long, clean, refreshing acidity.

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.
