d'Arenberg The Hermit Crab Viognier Marsanne 2015


The search of something with richness and interest doesn't need to blow a hole in the wallet. This Viognier Marsanne blend (58/42) ticks those boxes with ease.

Four percent underwent wild fermentation and 14% of the Viognier saw old American and French oak.

Fruit fires the shots here. Take a whiff and peach nectar fills the nose. Toasted nuts come later plus some honey tones. All flow to the palate which has a little spice for the ride home.

Drink now to three years.

90/100 - Very good
