d’Arenberg The Hermit Crab Viognier-Marsanne 75cl

  • Country: Australia
  • Region: McLaren Vale
  • Grape Varietals: Viognier-Marsanne

Many of McLaren Vale’s vineyards are on free-draining soils underlain with limestone, formed by the calcareous remains of the local marine fauna. One such creature was the Hermit Crab, a reclusive little crustacean that inhabits the cast-off shells of others. The Osborn family thought the name appropriate for this, McLaren Vale’s first ever blend of Viognier and Marsanne. “Hermit” is also an abbreviation for the French appellation of Hermitage, where the Marsanne grape variety dominates.

These sweet flavours evolve through the palate into more savoury flavours reminiscent of raw almonds and spice. A generous, textural wine with a surprising finesse on the finish.

Pair with mild curries and spices.
