 Wine Advocate 90 points (Dec 2011)
Medium-deep garnet colored, the 2009 The Custodian Grenache offers a very spicy nose over notes of prunes, raspberry preserves and a whiff of sultanas. Medium to full-bodied, it offers plenty of spicy, warm berry flavors, velvety tannins and balancing acidity, finishing long. Drink it now to 2016+. ”

Wine maker notes
During the vine pull scheme of the early 1980’s d’Arry Osborn refused to touch his old Grenache vineyards. When his son Chester started in the business as Chief Winemaker in 1984 he set about acquiring more old vine Grenache grapes and vineyards at a time when it was considered un-fashionable. Today d’Arenberg is the keeper of nearly one third of McLaren Vale’s old bush vine Grenache and has earned the title of ‘Custodian’ of the variety.
