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 your glass.
A bouquet of dark plums, currants, dark berries, forest floor and kelp with underlying toasted oak notes (gained from 15 months in French oak barrels). These concentrated flavours follow on the palate and combined with a fine tannin structure, give the wine a rich complex finish.
