d'Arenberg The Money Spider Roussanne 2010

The first vintage of this wine was in 2001.

Like many d'Arenberg wines this one was packed with punch. But on the second day I looked at it, it had softened nicely.

Some Viognier characters were apparent. Apricot, peach, but also a slight buttered toast element.

I liked the texture the palate delivered. Some nuttiness as well as those apricot flavours flowing through all coating the palate well.

Not a wine many people would drink on its own but I reckon you'd be on the right bus with chicken or something with a creamy sauce.
