  • $18.00*

The very first wine to bear the famous red stripe contained 50% Grenache, since that day it has been a variety central to d’Arenberg. The d’Arenberg portfolio now contains eight wines with a component of this stunning and charismatic red grape.
Winemaker Notes

The 2014 Custodian is a jewel of a wine that is perfectly balanced and harmonious. The first look suggests an enticing simplicity displaying primary fruit characters of mulberry, blueberry and plum. Deeper inspection however starts to reveal more complex layers, conjuring images of aniseed, fennel and
coriander seed.

The palate is warm and juicy. The sweet and savoury fruits are laced by fine silken tannins which lead to a super persistent finish, again displaying a delightful fruitiness, accompanied by more savoury, cedary, baking spice like notes. Simply put, this wine is liquid velvet.

A serious and savoury expression of Grenache, this will age well for up to ten years and will make a great accompaniment to food.
