Despite being a good match for fish, the name has little to do with sea going creatures. A fishplate is the colloquial term for the plates that collect the grape bunches on a harvester. The Adelaide Hills vineyard this wine is sourced from follows the contours of a steep hill which causes some very tight turns and awkward manoeuvres for the drivers. This often results in a broken fishplate, a dilemma that is not easily or quickly resolved for the driver. So this wine is a tribute to the hard working vineyard workers who are constantly repairing fishplates.

Intense, cut grass characters are clearly evident on the nose, alongside fresh snow peas and rich tropical fruit.

A little sweetness on the mid palate is followed by an intense burst of citrus, kaffir lime and zingy peach, tied together with crisp acidity and gentle phenolics. The harmonious balance of sweetness and vibrant acidity will have you coming back for more! Enjoy young and well chilled with spicy Thai or Indian cuisine.

The fruit for this wine is sourced from the cool climate Adelaide Hills. Small batches of grapes are crushed gently, chilled, and then transferred to stainless steel basket presses. Gentle extraction of the juice is critical in these early stages to retain the delicate fruit characters. To add complexity and mouthfeel, a small percentage of the wine is partially fermented in aged French oak for two to three weeks. None of the white wines at d’Arenberg are subject to malolactic fermentation as we aim for the retention of fresh, natural acidity, which is integral to the balance and longevity of the wine.

The nose is intensely perfumed, with lychee, gooseberry, grassy and rosehip notes all contributing. The flavour is similar; with an abundance of tropical fruits, lychees and passionfruit, swirling through the palate, highlighted by floral and grassy edges. The wine is fine and long, thanks to vibrant natural acidity, andwith a mineral finish.
