Tasting Notes

Lovely pomegranate, candy floss and liquorice flavours meet you on the nose, and these flavours follow through on the palate. The wine is soft, fruity and fresh on the palate.

Additional Information
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.
