Tasting Notes

Citrus and pineapple flavours on the nose, as well as fresh grassy notes from the Sauvignon Blanc, that flow onto the pallet. The wine is round and smooth and a good example of a fruity blend with easy drinkability to enjoy next to the pool, with a light brunch or as a sundowner.

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.

Vineyard type: Bush vine, no irrigation
