Production information

Producer: d'Arenberg

d’Arenberg is one of the most significant wineries in McLaren Vale. Founded in 1912 by Joseph Osborn, fourth generation, Chester Osborn took over the reins as Chief Winemaker in 1984. The last decade has seen Chester develop a range of white wines every bit as individual and thrilling as the red Rhone varieties with which the company made its name. There is method to his madness and no one knows their soils and vines better than Chester.


Production note

The 2008 Dry Dam Riesling fruit was selected from four separate picks over eight dry-grown vineyards yielding an average of less than 2.5 tonnes to the acre. Highly clarified free run juice was only collected for this wine from our basket press. This retains the natural fruit delicacy from this highly prized selection. Fermentation is long and cool and we use neutral yeasts in temperature controlled vessels to allow the full expression of fruit character to emerge from this wine.
