THE CUSTODIAN 2016 Grenache
During the vine pull scheme in the 80's, d'Arry Osborn refused to remove his old grenache vineyards. Today d'Arenberg is the keeper of nearly one third of McLaren Vale's old bush vine grenache, earning the title of 'Custodian' of the variety.
This is a fuller bodied style of Grenache. There's masses of blood orange and amaro on the nose, with fleshy red fruits and savoury spice on the palate. The texture is great, with prominent rhubarb and pomegranate flavours. Nice acidity and slightly grippy tannin on the finish.
