D'Arenberg 2009 The Hermit Crab Viognier-Marsanne (McLaren Vale)

The Hermit Crab is a plump, medium-bodied blend of Viognier (72%) and Marsanne (28%). Although it retains some Viognier-like elements of melon fruit and fullness of texture, some of the variety's distinctiveness appears to have been blended away by the Marsanne, leaving a less expressive but still nicely balanced and more versatile white wine.
