A wine with many layers of tropical hints, honey and pear notes on the nose. This is floral and fruity wine that is supported by a fresh acidity.

In The Vineyard
The recent demarcation of the Darling district has led to a focus at Darling Cellars on wines which are terroir and varietal specific. The cool and temperate West Coast climate lends itself to a different micro- and mesoclimate which, along with the different types of soil, lead to unique grapes, which we guide into even more unique wines. Having 99% of all vineyards dry land and almost the same percentage as bush vine, this is as close to what nature intended for grapes to be as one can get.
Terroir: Decomposed granite in the area surrounding Darling Hills. Hot summers moderated by the cool Atlantic.
Vineyard type: Bush Vine, no irrigation.
