"The Australian Wine Companion 2016 Ah, how much is this wine worth when d'Arenberg has two '12 Single Vineyard grenaches at $103 each? A more difficult question for the single vineyard wines than this, which is a drop-dead bargain, its fruit flavours given shape and persistence by finegrained, savoury/earthy tannins." A James Halliday Top 100 Wine Selection
90 Mike Bennie - The Wine Front
"Charred sticks and soil, spice, dark cherry and raspberry. Medium to full bodied palate delivers a good amount of flavour with grainy rustic tannin, balanced acidity and a grunty earthy finish. It’s got a fair bit of character. Like." Reviewed March 2015

"Pale to medium ruby/purple, the 2012 The Custodian Grenache reveals aromas of crushed black raspberries and black cherries with roses and earth nuances. Medium to full-bodied, the palate ripe, silky and seductive palate finishes with good length."

"d'Arenberg is a champion of grenache and this is a great bargain: a solid, full-flavoured red with abundant character at a paltry price. It has density and grip way above its station."
