Vinification

Only 2 180 bottles were produced from a Single Vineyard, dry land bush vine block in the Groenekloof ward of Darling. A single Nomblot egg clay cement tank was used for the fermentation process which allowed the wine to remain in contact with its lees for 3 months. Over this time the elegant attributes of Darling’s terroir developed slowly.

Ageing

Winemaker’s Notes

“Classic Sauvignon Blanc complexity with green fig floral pear drop notes and a hint of cut grass on the nose, follow through seamlessly to the full textured palate. The silky feeling of the beautifully balanced mouthfeel is complemented by a line of natural acidity and a long aftertaste.” – Johnnie Calitz
