While other winemaking techniques and varieties came and went, dArenberg ignored the vagaries of fashion, and now the oldest Grenache vines at dArenberg are approaching their 120th season, and are thick trunked, dry grown and deep rooted, struggling to produce modest quantities of small, highly flavoured grapes. As the champion of the variety in McLaren Vale, they proudly see themselves as the ‘custodian’ of Grenache. Its ripe; its scented, it’s gorgeous. The palate is medium-bodied, fleshy with concentrated red berry, plum, strawberries and a spicy softness that lingers on past the finish.
