In The Vineyard

Terroir: Vineyards from different slopes and different soils were used for this blend. The cool nights and cool South-westerly wind in the afternoons cooled the vineyards down and helped to form the elegant fruit flavours. Soil types consisted of weathered granite to deep red and well drained soils.
Vineyard type: Bush Vine, no irrigation

About The Harvest

Yield: 6 t/ha
Balling at Harvest: 21-22°B

In The Cellar

Vinification: Crush and destalk, 18 days fermentation at 14°C. Grapes and juice handled reductively to prevent oxidation and lock in fruitiness. Maturation: Left on lees for 2 months to add complexity. The wine is then De-Alcoholised by way of a gently spun cone technology. This is done under vacuum and at low temperature to ensure that the product retains its distinctive wine body, colour and flavour.

Additional Information

Darling Cellars De-Alcoholised is a product range of varietals where the focus is on fruit driven, varietal true, value for money wines. The grapes were harvested from dryland farmed vineyards in Darling, where the vines are not trellised and planted as bush vines.
