The 2008 The Money Spider Roussanne is unoaked. Light gold-colored, It has an enticing bouquet of honey, candle wax, and melon aromas followed by a vibrant, ripe, smooth-textured wine with layers of flavor. Drink this outstanding effort over the next 2-3 years.”,,,

Light gold. Palish yellow. Intriguing aromas of white peach, green tea, beeswax, pear, nectarine and jasmine. Dense and powerful, but the sappy flavors of nectarine and pear skin are enlivened by tangy acidity and a stony nuance. The refreshingly dry-edged finish features very good spicy lift and a suggestion of honey.

Wine maker notes
d’Arenberg planted Viognier, Marsanne and Roussanne in the mid 1990’s, and 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 a nature-lover 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.
