2009 d'Arenberg The Hermit Crab Marsanne - Viognier McLaren Vale

Winemaker's Notes

The nose is expressive and rich with orange peel, candied ginger and citrus blossom complimenting the varietal apricot character. The Marsanne shows itself in the peach and nutty complexity which is married nicely with an appealing straw like vegetal character. The palate has a lovely balance of sweetness, palate weight and acidity. Lemon and lime characters are prominent on the luscious palate with a lively granny smith apple acidity providing great focus.
