Founded in 1912, d'Arenberg is one of Australia's 'first family wineries'. The Osborn family is in its 4th generation as steward of their land, and all d’Arenberg vineyards (both estate-owned and leased), are NASAA Certified for organic and biodynamic processes.  This natural and environmentally friendly philosophy encourages strong root systems that penetrate the soil, resulting in lively tannin structures, soil characters and fine minerality. These practices also ensure that yields are kept low with concentrated flavors and excellent natural acidity. d’Arenberg is also one of the only wineries in Australia to basket press both white wines as well as reds, making for a labor intensive process, but the quality of the results makes this worthwhile as the action is controlled and extremely gentle.

An incredibly fragrant nose full of sweet apricot and gingery spice. The palate is luscious and generous, but has great acid which tightens the wine, adding freshness and a clean crisp finish. Slight pithy feel which builds on the spice notes. Lovely as a fresh stand alone drink that still exhibits some mouthfeel, or equally well adapted to enjoying with a range of foods from freshly shucked oysters through to spicy Thai style dishes.
