An assemblage of Chardonnay grown to choice McLaren Vale vineyards which are the source to some of the region's most distinguished wines. Classic and traditional vinification techniques were employed to retain the character of the superior quality fruit and to achieve elegance in the final wine. Whole bunches were transferred through an air bag press which gently breaks the grapes, allowing the juices to run freely, while harsh tannins are not released. Treated to inoculation and fermentation in a combination of French oak barriques and enriched by a regular lees stirring, leading to a full flavoured wine of great depth, a luxurious mouthfeel and abundant complexity.
 
Pale straw colour with green hues. Lifted fragrant aromas of ripe melons and peach, custard cream, lemons and spicy oak.

Best known for their award winning McLaren Vale reds, the second most conspicuous varietal wine at Coriole is Chenin Blanc. Their efforts have been ranked within the top ten Chenin Blancs of the world at Rendez Vous du Chenin Competition in France, no mean feat for an Australian. The soils at Coriole are mostly Terra rossa, red brown earths over limestone. Another part of the vineyard is endowed with red earth ironstones, the oldest block, established in 1920 is planted to deep clays. The drier than normal summers put a greater importance on land management and careful fruit selection throughout the vineyards and all during the vinification process.
 
Pale lime/ straw hues. Citrus, fresh pear and green apple bouquet with hints of kiwifruit. The palate is lively and fresh with pear juice and peach characters. A delicious and well balanced white wine exhibiting aromatic fruit flavours before a crisp acid finish. Chenin Blanc suits a wide range of foods and can also be served as an aperitif wine. It particularly suits the piquant nature of Thai and Indian cuisine.
dArenberg Dry Dam Riesling 2017
McLaren Vale
Available by the dozen

Rains arrived the following year but the dam was still unable to do its job, bad news for McLaren Vale farmers but perfect conditions for Darenberg's low yielding vines. Dry grown Riesling makes the most engaging wine, you'll enjoy the heady yet delicate personality, it promises an even greater range of refined characters as you sip and savour alongside the freshest fishes or sophisticated gourmandise.

dArenberg Hermit Crab Marsanne Viognier
McLaren Vale
Available by the dozen
The close proximity of d'Arenberg's vineyards to Gulf St. Vincent means the grapes can be stimulated by gently cooling maritime breezes. Much of McLaren Vale is planted to free draining soils underlaid by limestone, formed by the calcareous remains of local marine fauna. One such creature was the Hermit Crab, a reclusive little crustacean that to this day inhabits the cast off shells of others. McLaren Vale's first ever Marsanne Viognier is named Hermit as a reference to the region in France where the Marsanne grape dominates white wines.

At vintage time, Chester Osborn chooses when to pick the fruit by walking the vineyard rows and tasting grapes. Parcels of Viognier and Marsanne are crushed and settled before being treated to a gentle basket pressing which ensures the soft extraction of delicate but defined fruit characters of each grape. The Viognier and Marsanne components receive a similar vinification but are handled separately until the final stages. Fermentations are long and moderately cool to retain fresh fruit flavour. A small percentage of the Viognier is fermented in aged French and American oak barrels to add mouth feel and support the Viognier tannins. Components are assembled after a few months maturation.
 
Brilliant hue with light tints. Wonderfully aromatic, heavenly lift of candied ginger and crunchy, sweet white nectarine, complex Marsanne notes of green papaya and pistachio. Stone fruits hold sway over the sumptuous attack and mid palate, nuttiness of Marsanne and a delicate hint of sea spray. The complete package of stone fruits and spice before a long savoury finish make Hermit Crab the perfect dinner party starter.
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.

D'Arenberg are one of the last remaining wineries to basket press their wines. This gentle method of squeezing juice protects the delicate white grapes. The winemaking processes of the past have been maintained, capturing the unique small batch character and the true expression of McLaren Vale. Tasting the Rousanne in the vineyard, Chester Osborn chooses to pick when grapes are fully ripe to encourage good varietal stone fruit flavours. Back at the d'Arenberg wineworks, grapes are gently crushed and transferred to basket presses. Fermentations are long and moderately cool to retain fruit characters. Only free run juices are used for the final wine, unoaked and without any malolactic.
 
Brilliant mid straw hue. An array of stonefruit and tropical notes through to nuttiness and an ever so delicate hint of Indian spice, Asian salad, ginger, mango and papaya.

Parcels are vinified separately to retain regional highlights before assembling just prior to bottling.
