Darling Cellars' Gustus wines (Latin for 'taste') come from specific vineyards which are selected for their uniqueness in prominent terroir flavours.
A bouquet of dark plums, currants, dark berries, forest floor and kelp with underlying toasted oak notes. These concentrated flavours follow on the palate and, combined with a fine tannin structure, give the wine a rich, complex finish.
Pieter-Niel Rossouw, Carel Hugo
