d’Arenberg “Dadd” sparkling wine released

McLaren Vale producer d’Arenberg has released a limited edition sparkling wine called Dadd.

The label carries the signature d’Arenberg red sash, which bears a striking resemblance to a Champagne house with a similarly familial name.

As reported by the drinks business last May, chief winemaker Chester Osborn revealed the project has been one hundred years in the making.

“Four generations of dads have culminated in this celebratory project,” he said.

“It has taken us a century to produce a high end sparkling wine from high altitude vineyards in the Adelaide Hills – the highest altitude in fact.

The non-vintage sparkler is a blend of 52% Chardonnay, 40% Pinot Noir and 8% Pinot Meunier.

As to the wine’s reception in the UK, Osborn is confident it will be welcomed with good humour.

“I’m really excited about it. We wanted to call it Dadd with a double ‘d’ because there are so many of us involved with the project”, he said.

In defence of the provocative label design, Osborn said: “The Dadd label features the red sash because all of our wines have it – it’s been with us for sixty years.”

2012 marks the 100th anniversary of the family-owned winery.
