D'Arenberg Arry's Original

Established 1912. Since 1912 the Osborn family have tended vineyards in McLaren Vale, South Australia. Today fourth generation family member Chester makes distinctive wines using traditional methods both in the vineyard and winery. Small batches of grapes are crushed gently and then transferred to open fermenters. Foot treading in undertaken two thrids of the way through fermentation, the wine is basket pressed and transferred to old French oak to complete fermentation and mature for 12 to 21 months. First released in 1969 this wine was renamed d'Arry's Original in 1993, in honour of third generation family member Francis d'Arenberg Osborn, universally known as d'Arry, to honour his lifelong services to the wine industry.
