d’Arenberg 'The High Trellis' Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Special Price $20.00 Regular Price $21.00
2018 was a superb vintage in the Vale and this is a big, slightly rustic Cab packed with blackstrap, a little varietal greenery and great depth of flavor. Double decant for a couple of hours before pairing it with something meaty or give it 10 years before you get into it. Remarkable value for money.

d’Arenberg started operations in 1912. Initially they sold grapes to other wineries before building a winery of their own in 1927. d’Arry started helping out in the vineyard and winery from 1943 and is still involved today more than 70 vintages later. From the 1960’s onwards d’Arenberg have made a string of wines which have been highly awarded, including the 68 Cabernet which won the Jimmy Watson Trophy. Son Chester took over as senior winemaker in the early 80’s and has invested a huge amount of time researching alternative varieties likely to make excellent wine in McLaren Vale. Where the winery was born in a vat of Grenache and Shiraz, these days you are just as likely to taste Rousanne, Sagrantino, Souzao, Cincault, Tinta Cao or Tempranillo. That said the newer wines have not overshadowed the older varieties or styles which are still the cornerstone of the brand. All of the wines from d’Arenberg, new or old follow the same bouncing ball … cracking quality fruit first, wines that need to be decanted before drinking, wines that will age superbly.
