Darling Cellars Gustus Bukettraube 2018

This expressive wine deserves your attention due to its aromatic array of different flavors of peach, pear and fynbos notes followed by dash of floral and aniseed spice undertones. This wine has a crisp and refreshing mid palate with a lingering mouthfeel

Enjoy as an aperitif; partner to spicy fusion foods – not hot; sweet Cape curries, or goose liver and baked fruits.

Translated from Latin ‘gustus’ means ‘taste’ and this is what this wine is all about. Darling Cellars Gustus comes from specific vineyards which are selected for their uniqueness in prominent terroir flavours. These vineyards are planted in the best terroir for the specific varietal. Vineyards are carefully monitored by the winemaker who ultimately decides when the grapes will be harvested. The hand selection of grapes is focused on optimum ripeness at the crusher to deliver flavour in you glass. The best judge of TASTE is yourself!
