Tasting Notes

NOT AVAILABLE FOR TASTING AT CELLAR DOOR

We continue our pursuit of producing well balanced Sauvignon Blanc. This displays the cool climate, maritime influences that Darling is known for, offset with lovely tropical fruit flavours on the palate. A rounded and full mouthfeel with lingering length and structure. A modern style Sauvignon Blanc suited to modern tastes.
