'McLaren Vale's warm climate seems to suit these Rhone Valley white varieties better than more commonly encountered ones like chardonnay, riesling and sauvignon blanc. In past years d'Arenberg's blend has often been predominantly Marsanne with some viognier. In the warm 2013 vintage winemaker Chester Osborn bumped the viognier component up to 65 per cent. Although it isn't so obvious in the aroma, the palate reveals viognier's distinctive apricot like flavour. Fortunately, Marsanne tempers this (it can be overwhelming in some wines), giving a tasty, full flavoured wine, with a savoury edge and rich, smooth palate.'
