Coriole Chenin Blanc
McLaren Vale
Available by the dozen
Chenin Blanc has been Coriole's flagship white since 1982, a pure varietal wine that couldn't be any fresher. Beautifully aromatic, it has great fruit concentration and shows an outstanding ability to age, highly suited to the moderately warmer climes of Coriole's vineyard at McLaren Vale. Lively, spirited tropical fruit characters are jumping out of the bottle, so get those flatheads frying, forget the serious analysis and just enjoy a crisp, clean bottle of fun.

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
McLaren Vale
Available by the dozen
Darenberg's neighbours built a dam in 1992 which collected little water throughout the first dry winter. 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.

Bright citrus hues. A sparklingly clean and aromatic bouquet, teeming with white flowers and granny smith, backed by a lovely core of lemon and lime. The sweetness on the palate is tempered by a sustained seam of perfectly pitched acidity. A sherbet like note, not a hint of metallic hardness, the mouthfeel is so refined and balanced and truly has settled into itself in record time.
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. Rich, textural mouthfeel, delivers a generous mouthfeel oozing with luscious mango, honeydew melon and jasmine leaf, finishing long with tang and spice. Pairs particularly well with antipasto, fatty fish and white meat dishes.
dArenberg Olive Grove Chardonnay
McLaren Adelaide
Available by the dozen
You'll see plenty of olive trees alongside the d'Arenberg roadsides, flourishing among the vines. McLaren Vale is littered with olive groves which were planted by the first settlers. While neighbouring table grape growers consider olive trees a nuisance, local winemakers are thankful for the bittersweet nuances which the tiny green stonefruits impart to the wine. Chester Osborn determines the critical time of picking his Chardonnay, which is treated to wild ferments and lees stirring, for a rich textural wine with savoury aromas and good palate complexity.

McLaren Vale makes buxom, fleshy white varietal wines of structure and balance. The Adelaide Hills yield a brisk style of Chardonnay with penetrating fruit characters and crisp stonefruit acidity.

Parcels are crushed and cold soaked on skins at 2°C for a day prior to basket pressing, gentle extraction of juices are critical to retain delicate fruit characters. Batches are fermented and matured in a mixture of French and American oak for seven months, bottled immediately upon completion for optimal retention of fresh, natural acidity, so integral to the balance and longevity of the wine.
 
Pale straw hues. Attractive array of nectarine and granny smith, vanilla, spice and mildly roasted nuts. The palate has an initial hit of creaminess, quite strong in stone fruit and white flowers. Mid palate reverts to a more streamline shape as seaspray and nutty nuances emerge. The finish is long and dry, with just a whisper of vanillan, a lovely modern style of Chardonnay.

Hugo Estate Chardonnay
McLaren Vale

Grazing pastures invariably make the most auspicious soils for winegrowing. Hugo owe their splendid provenance to a mixed farm which ran sheep and assorted cattle, dairy and tomatoes, almonds and of course grapes. Chardonnay vineyards came much later, but McLaren Vale, influenced by balmy maritime climes and populated by olive groves, is highly favourable to white grapes. Hugo choose to frame the natural charm of McLaren Vale Chardonnay with a supple touch of oak, allowing the fruit to speak for itself, a ripe peach and nectarine style, perfect for chicken caesar or salade niçoise.

Some batches are matured six months in oak barrel, the balance is vinified and held in fermenters to retain freshness. Components are assessed to determine the optimal balance of bright lifted fruit flavours and leesy oak complexity before assembling into the final wine.

Lovely intense stone fruit characters of nectarine and peach, beautifully integrated with nut and nougat aromas, fresh honey butter legs around the rim of the glass, all supported by well balanced oak.
