The grapes for this wine are a blend from a bushvine vineyard situated Darling. And trellised vineyards in Paarl. The Darling vineyard is approximately 300m above sea level on the west-facing hills outside Darling and was planted on Richter 99 rootstock in 2001 and is dryland farmed. The soil in this vineyard is decomposed granite, which differentiates it from the surrounding vineyards (which are composed mainly of clay-heavy oakleaf soils). Pale straw colour in the glass. The wine has tropical fruit notes of pineapple and citrus on the nose. The palate is medium bodied with a fresh and fruity flavours follow by a lingering zesty finish. Best enjoyed within the next year or two.
