Wine Of The Week
D’arenberg Hermit Crab McLaren Vale, Australia
The Hermit Crab is a delightful blend of Viognier and Marsanne grapes. The Viognier throws the first punch in this wonderfully aromatic wine with its heavenly lift of light stone fruits. The slight nuttiness Marsanne notes will deliver at the finish. The Viognier and Marsanne components received similar treatment, but are not blended until the final stages of the winemaking process. The complete package of stone fruits and spice with a long savoury finish makes this wine the perfect dinner party starter. Certainly enjoyable without food.
