Old Blocks Pinotage by Darling Cellars

Old Blocks Pinotage forms part of Darling Cellars’ Reserve range of straight varietals with a focus on fruit-driven, varietal-true, value-for-money wines.

Tasting Notes

This wine is very expressive and complex on the nose with flavours of red berries, black cherries, vanilla, butterscotch, red plums, coffee and nuances of strawberries. On the palate the flavours follow through with good structure and silky tannins. A well balanced wine with elegance and a lengthy aftertaste.

Additional Information

Darling Cellars Reserve is a wine range of straight varietals where the focus is on fruit driven, varietal true, value for money wines.

The Darling area historically is a dairy area and only the last 10 – 15 years, grape growing has come to the fore. Renowned for its wild flowers, it is one of the Western Cape’s most diverse areas. The Darling Wildflower Society was founded in 1915 with an annual show in September.

The area was used during the 18 hundreds by the government of the day to fatten their cattle, as the area had large plains of natural grass. The traditional produce was game, salt and butter.

These days an abundance of businesses thrive in Darling. Wine, dairy, baskets, olives, sand and water are some of the industries which, along with tourism, makes Darling tick along.
