In The Vineyard

The grapes for our Black Granite Vintage Reserve come from dry-land bush vines rooted in our deep, dark coloured decomposed granite soils. The rich soil, warm summer days and the cool evening provided by the nearby Atlantic Ocean ensure optimal ripening and maximum fruitiness.

In The Cellar

The grapes are carefully selected and hand harvested when perfectly ripe. After a gentle pressing, the rich, velvety juice is crafted through fermentation into wine. To achieve the wine’s full-bodied character, maturation takes place in a combination of French and American oak barrels and oak staves for 8-10 months.

Additional Information

The story behind the label - the design drew inspiration from the decomposition of granite soil for which the Darling region is so well known, which bears the resemblance to the pattern found on a vine leaf.
