Additional Information

Keeping in line with consumers’ need for value without compromising on taste or quality, the award-winning Reserve Bushvine Sauvignon Blanc is now available in a convenient new 2L slim box. The box also keeps the wine fresher for longer in the fridge and can travel where glass can’t. Darling Cellars Reserve is a wine range of straight 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.
