94 Pts James Halliday - Australian Wine Companion

"Serious grenache. Unafraid of tannin, though darker berried, licoricey fruits wash through the dryness, maintaining a fleshy, succulent feel throughout. Delicious flowering herb notes add extra spunk. More than a little X-factor."

93 Pts Wine & Spirits

"It’s rare to find this kind of elasticity in the fruit of grenache, the earthy tannins snapping back on the concentrated old-vine fruit. This is supple and bold, with complex layers of flavor that touch on red fruit leather, strawberry seeds and dark, smoky notes of earth. The intensity of the wine’s flavor loops back in the end, lasting for minutes in its clear, numinous beauty. Chester Osborn has been collecting ancient, derelict vineyards for more than two decades, restoring their vines to something like productivity. They performed remarkably well through the hot days and cool nights of the 2010 season." Reviewed 10/2014

92 Pts Gary Walsh - The Wine Front

"Label refresh for d’Arenberg, and while I’m not sold on the icon wines like Dead Arm, I do like these from the ‘Artisans’ range in their bewildering array of wines. Raspberry, rose petals and cut stems, nutmeg, new leather, liquorice all sorts – and all sorts of things going on here. Medium bodied, perky and fresh in the mouth with an almost fresh apricot and orange tang, sandy tannin, and a preference for more earthy and herbal flavours, rather than simple fruit sweetness. Ah yes, McLaren Vale Pinot Noir here."

90 Pts Josh Raynolds - Vinous Media

"Deep ruby. Medicinal cherry and pungent herbs on the exotically perfumed nose and in the mouth. Refreshingly bitter and precise, with good lift and building spiciness. Turns sweeter on the persistent finish, which is framed by chewy tannins. No way that I'd have guessed that this was an Aussie grenache; in fact, there's something Italianate going on here."

90+ Pts Richard Jennings - RJonWine.com

"(d'Arenberg Grenache The Derelict Vineyard) Dark ruby color; tart red berry, roasted black fruit, tar nose; tasty, tart red berry, roasted black fruit, tar palate with medium acidity; could use 3 years; medium-plus finish (13.5% alcohol; pH 3.48; TA 6.3 g/L)" Reviewed 5/18/2015


About the Family of D'arenberg
One of the most significant wineries in McLaren Vale, D'arenberg was established in 1912 when Joseph Osborn, a teetotaler and director of Thomas Hardy and Sons, sold his stable of prize winning horses to purchase the property that now houses the winery, cellar door and D'arrys Verandah Restaurant.

Joseph's son Frank joined him on the land and they set about acquiring some more vineyards. Joseph Osborn died in 1921 leaving full control of the business to Frank.

In the early years grapes were sold to other wineries before the winery was built in 1927 shortly after Francis (universally known as D'arry) Osborn was born.

Initially making fortified wines to export to England, the business prospered until World War II stifled demand. This coincided with Frank’s ill health which forced D'arry to leave school in 1943 at age 16 to help his father run the business and work the land.

D'arry took full control of the business in 1957 upon Frank’s death and in 1959 he launched his own wine label named in honour of his mother, Helena d'Arenberg, who died shortly after giving birth to him. d’Arry decided to put a red stripe on the label, inspired by happy memories of his school days at Prince Alfred College, where he wore the crimson-and-white striped school tie.

D'arry’s son Chester joined the business in 1984 as Chief Winemaker and makes distinctive wines using traditional methods both in the vineyard and the winery.
