Darling Cellars Reserve Old Blocks Pinotage


Darling Cellars Reserve Old Blocks Pinotage has a very bright nose and a concentrated palate, reminiscent of ripe plums and cherries. These flavours are complimented by the soft tannins that ensure the wine will pair well with most poultry and lighter red meat dishes.

The recent demarcation of the Darling district has led Darling Cellars to a focus on wines which are terroir and variety specific. The vineyards are planted in deep, decomposed granite soils on the slopes of the Darling Hills, where the heat of the warm afternoons is tempered by the nearby Atlantic Ocean. This results in top quality grapes that are crafted into delicious and unique wines. 99% of the vineyards are dry farmed and almost the same percentage is trained as bush vines, providing an almost completely natural growing environment for the vines.

This Darling Cellars Reserve Old Blocks Pinotage spent 12 months in a combination of 3rd and 4th fill French oak barrels.
