Darling Cellars De-alcoholised is a range of varietals where the focus is on fruit-driven, varietal true, value for money wines.

Made from 100% Shiraz, this wine is deep ruby red in colour with hints of ripe red fruit, crushed black pepper, dried rose petals and candied cherries. Well-integrated French oak tannins add to the palate.

Vinification details

Grapes were crushed and destalked before 5-10 days’ fermentation. After malolactic fermentation, wine was racked into 2nd- and 3rd-fill barrels and stainless steel tanks with a combination of French and American oak staves for 12 months to add structure and complexity. The wine was de-alcoholised with gently spun cone technology, performed under vacuum and at low temperature to ensure retention of the wine’s body, colour and flavour.
