- ORGANIC AND VEGAN FRIENDLY MCLARENVALE CUSTODIAN GRENACHE
- 5 RED STAR RATED WINERY WINE COMPANION
Grenache has always been a cornerstone of d'Arenberg's red wines and this is one of the benchmarks of the variety. Produced from old low yielding vines it is a wine of great character and intensity. Showing none of the sickly confectionery characters that can plague this variety, it's all about elegant, savoury spice.
The winemaking of d'Arenberg Custodian Grenache 2017 vintage saw 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 old French and American oak to complete fermentation and mature. The barrel ferments are aged on lees, and there is no racking until final blending. This wine does not undertake fining or filtration prior to bottling.
