    Winemaker Notes

    The feral foxes that inhabit the Adelaide Hills region have developed an appetite for grapes as a replacement for their old favorite, the local rabbit, whose numbers have reduced substantially in recent years dues to the Calici virus. The folks at d'Arenberg, however, are unfazed, as the foxes actually act as crop thinners, which ultimately enhances the quality of those grapes too high to reach.

    The 2005 Feral Fox is an expressive medium bodied wine with aromas of dark cherries, Satsuma plums, boysenberries, strawberries, and complex spices and fragrant dried herbs. This wine expresses a gorgeous mix of ripe fruits; boysenberry, strawberry, sour cherries and wild plum. The texture is kept in check with elevated acidity and ripe firm tannins.

    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.
