DARLING CELLARS RESERVE "ARUM FIELDS" - CHENIN BLANC - Darling, SOUTH ARICA - 2014

Very light with green with yellow hints. A fruity, crisp white with pears and peaches on the nose as well as mouthwatering guava flavours.  A well balanced and structured Chenin with guava, passion fruit and citrus flavours following through on the taste and a well-rounded finish. A well balanced, medium bodied wine, with a crisp and fresh acidity.

VINEYARD

The recent demarcation of the Darling district has led to a focus at Darling Cellars on wines which are terroir and varietal specific. The cool and temperate West Coast climate lends itself to a different micro- and mesoclimate which, along with the different types of soil, lead to unique grapes, which we guide into even more unique wines. Having 99% of all vineyards dry land and almost the same percentage as bush vine, this is as close to what nature intended for grapes to be as one can get.
