Description

d’Arenberg Galvo Garage is winemaker Chester Osborn’s homage to the so-called ‘garage wines’ from Bordeaux, the home of the classic varieties used in this blend. There they are produced in the shed or ‘garage’ of boutique winemakers dedicated to making small-volume wines of the highest quality. These wines are not ‘Classified’ by the governing wine authorities, yet are often the most sought after, highly priced wines in the world today. D’Arenberg’s galvanized, corrugated ‘garage’ was built in 1927, and to this day, houses d’Arenberg’s traditional open fermenters and 19th century basket-presses used in the handcrafting of this wine. Hence “Galvo Garage”.

d’Arenberg Galvo Garage is mainly a Cabernet based blend. The 2009 is a blend of 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot and  23% Petit Verdot. The fruit comes from vineyards in McLaren Vale (85%) and Adelaide Hills (15%). The grapes are foot trodden and basket pressed. Small batches of grapes are gently crushed and then transferred to open fermenters. Foot treading is undertaken two thirds of the way through fermentation, the wine is basket pressed and transferred to a mixture of new and old French oak to complete fermentation. The barrel ferments are aged on lees, there is no racking until final blending and no fining or filtration.

With no fining or filtration d’Arenberg Galvo Garage is suitable for vegans and vegetarians.

d’Arenberg are members of Australia’s First Families of Wine, a group founded in 2009 to an initiative to “take the heart and soul of Australian wine to the world”.
