Tasting Notes

The Viognier takes centre stage on the nose showing stone fruits, candied ginger and florals. The Marsanne adds exotic notes of green mango and almond. The palate has a lovely medium-bodied weight to it, without any of that oiliness that overripe Viognier can deliver. Precise acid throughout and a mild pithy texture on the finish ensures freshness and spice to keep the sweetness of the fruit in check. Fruity and spicy yet dry make this an all occasions wine.Many of McLaren Vale's vineyards are on free-draining soils underlain with limestone, formed by the calcareous remains of the local marine fauna. One such creature was the Hermit Crab, a reclusive little crustacean that inhabits the cast-off shells of others. The Osborn family thought the name appropriate for this, McLaren Vale's first ever blend of Viognier and Marsanne. 'Hermit' is also an abbreviation for the French appellation of Hermitage, where the Marsanne grape variety dominates.A great aperitif, or try with white meat in a creamy sauce.
