Winemaker Notes

Bright red fruits, lavender, violets and spicy lift on the nose. The palate is full bodied and darker than previous years with a structural backbone of boney fruit tannin alongside plum, raspberry, mulberry and dark cherry with earth, smoked meats, dried herb and cinnamon. A serious and savory expression of Grenache that will age well.

Critical Acclaim

WS 90
Wine Spectator
This has a big grip of tannins, but the underlying blackberry, smoke and tar flavors have focus, power and depth. The tannins are daunting, as this is supposed to be a drink-me-now wine. Best after 2014.
RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Medium-deep garnet colored, the 2009 The Custodian Grenache offers a very spicy nose over notes of prunes, raspberry preserves and a whiff of sultanas. Medium to full-bodied, it offers plenty of spicy, warm berry flavors, velvety tannins and balancing acidity, finishing long. Drink it now to 2016+.

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.
