d'Arenberg Tasting (Harpenden)
Join us on a wonderful tasting exploring the wines of d'Arenberg, one of the hottest producers in McLaren Vale, South Australia. For this special tasting, we have teamed up with d'Arenberg's UK distributer Enotria. The evening will be attended by Enotria's Ian McNabb, who will bring his first hand experience of the d'Arenberg portfolio and be able to provide the back story to some of the producer's famous names such as The Hermit Crab, The Money Spider, The Laughing Magpie and the iconic Dead Arm Shiraz. The precise line-up of wines on tasting have yet to be confirmed but the range is extensive and boasts fantastic quality and complexity throughout.
At d'Arenberg, the energetic and larger-than-life chief winemaker Chester Osborn works with individual parcels of fruit that display different flavour profiles that are influenced by the unique soil characteristics and climates of the vineyards. All the wines are hand-crafted and pressed in wooden baskets using presses dating from 1860. "The quality of the wines is unimpeachable, the prices logical and fair. It has a profile in both the UK and and the US which far larger companies would love to have." James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion.
Don't miss this unique chance to taste some of the best wines coming out of McLaren Vale, at which there will also be an opportunity to order them on the evening, at specially discounted prices. It has been seven years since we ran a bespoke d'Arenberg tasting and yet still people remember it want another one! This tasting can also be bought as a Gift Voucher for just £30.
