Description

d’Arenberg Derelict Vineyard Grenache is a single vineyard wine made with grapes grown in the McLaren Vale wine-growing region.

d’Arenberg is one of the most famous McLaren Vale wineries. It was founded in 1912 by Joseph Osborn, the estate is now in the hands of fourth generation winemaker Chester Osborn who, in 2007, was ranked in Australia’s Top 10 Shiraz producers by Wine & Spirits Magazine. Some years ago 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. His search unveiled a number of old bush vine and poorly maintained trellised vineyards in various states of disrepair. Hence the the inspiration behind naming this wine “Derelict Vineyard”.

The exceptionally low-yielding Grenache vines for the d’Arenberg Derelict Vineyard are harvested late in vintage. Small batches of grapes are gently crushed and then transferred to five tonne headed down open fermenters. These batches remain separate until final blending. Foot treading is undertaken two thirds of the way through fermentation. The wine is then basket pressed and transferred to a mixture of old French and American oak barriques to complete fermentation. The barrel ferments are aged on lees, and there is no racking until final blending. d’Arenberg Derelict Vineyard Grenache does not undertake fining or filtration prior to bottling.

Suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
