“d’Arenberg is an icon of the McLaren Vale, dating back to 1912. Chief winemaker Chester Osborn is the great-grandson of the founder, Joseph Rowe Osborn. Chester now oversees a stellar (and ever-expanding) range of strangely named and exquisitely crafted red and white wines.
The oldest of the d’Arenberg blocks were first planted in the 1880s with Shiraz, and still contribute to the wines today.”

South Australia

South Australia is the largest wine producing state of Australia. It may be surprising to most that the Riverland region is the state’s largest grape producing area. The Barossa Valley is famed for its full-bodied, rich, ripe and generous reds. The Coonawarra is internationally renowned for its Cabernet Sauvignon (and prized ‘terra rossa’ soils). Padthaway, McLaren Vale, and the Clare Valley all make major contributions, and the importance of the Adelaide Hills is rapidly increasing.

The Money Spider Roussanne

The first crop of Roussanne from the 2000 vintage was covered in a sea of tiny `Money Spiders` (Erigoninae). Popular belief is that kindness to these little creatures will bring good luck, hopefully in the form of money. Being nature – lovers and slightly superstitious, Chester refrained from sending the spiders to their death. Hence the first release of Roussanne was from the 2001 vintage, by which time the `Money Spiders` had learned their lesson and moved from the vineyard to the surrounding bushland.

The Lucky Lizard Chardonnay

The fruit for this wine is sourced from the cool climate Adelaide Hills. Small batches of grapes are crushed gently, chilled and then basket pressed. To add complexity and mouthfeel the wine is fermented and aged in aged French oak for 7 months. During the summer, native Bearded Dragon Lizards fine their way in to the grapes destined for the winery. Luckily for the lizards, the gentleness of our crusher allows them to pass through the ordeal slightly shaken, but unharmed.

Love Grass Shiraz

Shiraz has been the leading variety grown in McLaren Vale since the first plantings in the mid 1800’s. Over the years, as the region has matured, other varieties have emerged and are often used by winemakers in their Shiraz blends. One such example from d’Arenberg is The Love Grass which includes a small percentage of other varieties, those being Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Grenache, Petit Verdot and Pinot Noir. Much the same way as the Love Grasses in many of d’Arenberg’s vineyards stick to your socks, these other varieties cling to the Shiraz to produce wines that are interesting and expressive blends but are still true to the McLaren Vale style.
