D’Arenberg The Hermit Crab Viognier Marsanne 2016, McLaren Vale, AUD $15

Continues a run of amazing value wines under this label. Soft, rounded, full-flavoured and fragrant, it boasts a bouquet of clean flower, spice and stone-fruit aromas. The generous palate is rounded and seems further softened by a subliminal hint of sweetness. (Screwcap)
