d’Arenberg, McLaren Vale, The Hermit Crab 2008 The nose features a combo of the herbaceousness that we can find with Marsanne and the overt peaches that we often see with Viognier. The mouth shows us an oily richness overtop of peaches – thick and mouth-filling.
Tasted again in June 2010 the signature characteristics of the grapes carry on very nicely.
This vintage is composed of 72% Viognier and 28% Marsanne. Grown, vinified and bottled under Stelvin in McLaren Vale 13.5% $12.49 at Bottle Barn
