The vines are all pruned by hand, harvesting occurs in the cool of very early morning, usually starting at 2.00 am, to ensure that grapes arrive at the winery in top condition. Chardonnay is harvested throughout the cooler hours and pressed, juices are settled overnight and racked over a high proportion of juice solids. Upon completion of ferments, batches are held on sedimentery lees, regularly stirred to build complexity and texture before bottling.
 
Brilliant pale gold, emerald hues. Aroma of peaches and cream with subtle savoury notes. Honeydew melon and white peach on the palate with hints of vanilla and hazelnut and creamy textural structure underpinned by soft, mineral acidity.

dArenberg Money Spider Roussanne
McLaren Vale
Available by the dozen
D'Arenberg planted McLaren Vale's first Viognier, Marsanne and Roussanne. The first crop was found to be covered in a sea of tiny Money Spiders Erigoninae. Popular belief is that kindness to these active little creatures will bring good luck, hopefully in the form of money. Being nature lovers and slightly superstitious, the staff refrained from sending spiders to their death. Hence the first Roussanne was not released until the following year, by which time Money Spiders had learned their lesson and moved to bushland surrounding the vines.
