Product information: d'Arenberg The Derelict Vineyard Grenache is a single vineyard wine from McLaren Vale. Some years ago, chief winemaker, Chester Osborn, sought out additional premium Grenache fruit from McLaren Vale to meet the high demand for d'Arenberg's Grenache-based wines. Amongst others, a particular vineyard planted thirty years ago with Grenache appeared promising, and was the inspiration behind the naming of this wine.  The exceptionally low-yielding Grenache was picked late in vintage, gently crushed, fermented and pressed before barrel fermentation and maturation for 12 months in older French & American oak barriques.
