De-alcoholised White, Darling Cellars
Darling Cellars De-alcoholised is a range of varietals where the focus is on fruit-driven, varietal true, value for money wines.
A light yellow with a hint of green in colour; flavours of ripe tropical fruit, yellow peaches and gooseberries are complemented by a fresh acidity and lingering finish.
On arrival at the winery, grapes were crushed and destalked before 14 days’ fermentation at 14-15°C. The grapes and juice were handled reductively to prevent oxidation and lock in fruitiness. Post-fermentation, it was left on the lees for 2 months to add complexity. The wine was then de-alcoholised by way of a gently spun cone technology. This was done under vacuum and at a low temperature to ensure that the product retains its distinctive body, colour and flavour.
