d’Arenberg The Custodian Grenache 2017

One of the originals in the extensive d’Arenberg line up.

d’Arenberg, The Custodian, Grenache, McLaren Vale, 2017


These originals offer pretty good value for money. Black cherries, raspberries and that dark mineral spine that is much more McLaren Vale than Grenache. Silky and full to start with just a little tang of warmth in the tail. Fruit is pushed to the front, the tannins firm and a bright flourish to close.

RRP: $21
Alc: 14.5%
Rating: 17.25/20 (89/100)
