D'Arenberg Moneyspider Roussanne
An exotic white wine, robust, full flavoured and complex with a rich, textural mouthfeel.
This wine is straw yellow with a pretty green hue. Just ripe peach, honeydew melon and white flowers dominate the nose with exotic Asian salad flavours of green mango, papaya and pickled ginger strewn across the palate. Textural yet taunt, the generous mid-palate concludes with fresh and tangy acidity.
The story goes... the first crop of Roussanne from the 2000 vintage was covered in a sea of tiny “Money Spiders” (Erigoninae). Popular belief is that kindness to these little creatures will bring good luck, hopefully in the form of money. Being nature-lovers and slightly superstitious, Chester refrained from sending the spiders to their death. Hence the first release of Roussanne was from the 2001 vintage, by which time the “Money Spiders” had learned their lesson and moved from the vineyard to the surrounding bushland.
