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.

in the vineyard : Terroir: Decomposed granite, with deep red top
soils. A low yield from dry land and bush vine
Vineyard type: Bush Vine, no irrigation

about the harvest: Yield: 5.5-6.5 t/ha
Balling at Harvest: 24-25°B

in the cellar : Vinification: Crush and destalk, 5-7 days fermentation at 20-30°C
Maturation: After malolactic fermentation of the wine is transferred into stainless tanks to which staves are added.
