Darling Cellars Old Bush Vines Brut 2016

This complex MCC portrays something significant of the Darling area. MCC shows clean and fresh fruit with hints of lime, lemon and ripe red apples together with toastiness, biscuity flavors. Creamy brioche and the influence of extended lees contact improves the mouthfeel that results with a long crisp finish.
