d’Arenberg 2015 The Hermit Crab McLaren Vale

 

There is a long history of French influence on Aussie winemakers. This blend of Viognier and Marsanne is a paen to the classic white wines of the Rhone Valley.  The name “Hermit” is an homage to the northern Rhone region of Hermitage, where Marsanne is the king of white wines.

There is a wonderful depth to this wine and a lushness that makes its all the more entertaining. Mango, pear, pineapple, and fennel with a finish that veers towards pine nuts. Medium to full bodied.  Serve this with grilled chicken with a peach salsa or maybe a fennel salad.
