Winemaker Comments

This wine is typical Darling, with minerality in abundance. Fresh cut grass and green aromas are prominent on the nose, while citrus and quince abound on the palate. Well integrated acidity and abundant flavours give the wine great length. THE HARVEST This was the earliest harvest I have experienced. The climatic conditions were very much in favour of a good Sauvignon Blanc year. Cooler conditions during the earlier stages of grape ripening, and the  formation of smaller berries, led to more concentrated juice. IN THE CELLAR The wine was fermented for 2 weeks in stainless  steel tanks. It spent 3 months on the lees before filtering and bottling.
