D'ARENBERG VIOGNIER/MARSANNE HERMIT CRAB 16

D'ARENBERG VIOGNIER/MARSANNE HERMIT CRAB 16

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.

The nose of this wine displays an enticing mix of white stonefruits and sweet pineapple with an underlying hint of ginger.

The palate is luscious and flavoursome, again nectarine and peach are prominent, with a twist of candied citrus rind.
