About The Harvest

Yield : 6 t/ha
Balling at Harvest : 24-25°B

In The Cellar

Crush and destalk, 5-10 days fermentation at 20-30°C.
Maturation: After malolactic fermentation, wine is racked into 2nd and 3rd fill barrels and stainless-steel tanks with a combination of French and American oak staves for 12 months to add structure and complexity. The wine is then DeAlcoholised 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 products. The grapes were harvested from dryland farmed vineyards in Darling, where the vines are not trellised and planted as bush vines.
