    The Hermit Crab Viognier Marsanne 2016 - d'Arenberg

    The Hermit Crab from d'Arenberg from the Australian wine-growing region McLaren Vale in Adelaide is a rich, refreshing and crunchy white wine cuvée vinified from the Viognier and Marsanne grape varieties.

    In the glass this wine shines in a bright straw yellow with greenish highlights. The bouquet presents a seductive scent of white stone fruits and sweet pineapple, finely accentuated by a hint of ginger. On the aromatic and juicy palate, nectarines and peaches are revealed, refined with candied citrus peel. These sweet aromas evolve into hearty aromas reminiscent of almonds and spices. The generous, textured mouthfeel closes with a surprising finesse in the finish.

    Vinification of the Hermit Crab d'Arenberg Marsanne Viognier

    The grapes are gently pressed in small batches and placed in stainless steel basket presses. The fermentation process is characterized by its length and coolness. About 4% of this Australian white wine undergoes wild fermentation - 14% of the Viognier is fermented in French oak. Marsanne undergoes a similar fermentation process.

    Only at the end of the vinification process are the two grape varieties married and bottled.

    The name The Hermit Crab

    Many of the vineyards in McLaren Vale grow on well drained limestone soils, formed from the limestone remains of the local marine fauna. The hermit crab, a secluded crustacean that inhabits the shells of others, is part of this marine fauna. This is how the name for the first McLaren Vale-Blend came from Viognier and Marsanne. "Hermit" also stands for the abbreviation of the French appellation Hermitage, which is dominated by the Marsanne grape variety.
