D'Arenberg's 2017 The Hermit Crab Viognier / Marsanne is vaguely floral, in an orange-blossom way, with more assertive notes of grapefruit pith and melon. It's medium to full-bodied, with a rich, oily texture and a round, generous mouthfeel balanced by citrus pith on the finish.
This blend starts off with aromas of stone fruit, melon, honey and blossoms. The palate steers with more weight via a creamy texture, prickly acidity and plenty of peachy fruitiness. It's a simple but refreshing white wine.
