THE STORY BEHIND THE LABEL

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!

in the cellar : Crush and destalk, 12 hours skin contact, 14 days fermentation at 13°C. Reductive winemaking. Left on lees for 6 months in Stainless Steel tanks to add complexity and depth.
