d'Arenberg Custodian Grenache 2016 (McLaren Vale)

The 2016 vintage of d'Arenberg's The Custodian is a more full-bodied style of Grenache. There's masses of blood orange and amaro on the nose, with fleshy red fruits and savoury spice on the palate. The texture is great, with prominent rhubarb and pomegranate flavours. Nice acidity and slightly grippy tannin on the finish.

During the vine pull scheme in the 80's, d'Arry Osborn refused to remove his old Grenache vineyards. Today d'Arenberg is the keeper of nearly one third of McLaren Vale's old bush vine grenache, earning the title of 'Custodian' of the variety.

The season began well with average winter rainfall, Summer conditions were significantly warmer than average with two heatwaves through January testing the limits of the vines. Following the heatwave was rain and cool weather, which helped slow down ripening, and allowed flavour development to catch up to sugar ripeness. White wines from this vintage are fruity and very flavoursome, as are reds with ample tannin to match.

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. Winey notes
