Mt Difficulty Pinot Noir 2016
This vintage has produced a Pinot Noir displaying opulent rich aromatics; lush dark fruits of the forest dominate the aroma and these are underpinned by sweet brown spice notes. The wine displays lovely elegance and flow with striking precision and clarity. On the palate it kicks off with a plush dense fruit of the forest entry, this plushness then moves beautifully into the mid palate, after which fine elegant textural tannins frame fruit and acidity on a lengthy finish.
Mt Difficulty Bannockburn Pinot Noir will improve for 7-10 years given optimal vintage and cellaring conditions.
The growing season in 2013 kicked off with a cool spring. Frosts in early November reduced production from Station Block, at the top of the Cromwell basin, but Bannockburn was untouched. Although the cool spring continued after that, temperatures warmed just before Christmas in time to make for a very successful flowering. January was cooler and wetter than average and then February onwards was very warm and dry. We experienced a protracted veraison (the point at which the grapes stop growing and start to ripen, characterised by colour change) leading to increased variability in ripeness. To counter this we introduced a late colour thin to ensure fruit arrived in optimal condition at harvest. Early autumn returned to more classic settled Central autumnal conditions, and harvest started on the 3rd of April, continuing through until the 3rd of May. It was a normal yielding year, with nice focused acidity and interesting flavour profiles reflecting, to some degree, the variability of the season.... more »
Roaring Meg Pinot Gris 2017
This wine has aromatics reminiscent of a fruit cocktail full of stonefruit, melon and green mango. These characters are richly replicated on the palate, with a full textured mid palate and an off-dry finish.

Greystone Pinot Noir 2015
Deep dark plum colour with a brooding nose of dark cherry, raspberry, leather, fennel and spices. The complexity of the nose leads beautifully into the detail of the palate – with chalky tannins and a long thread of acidity pushing through a long mouthfeel. Ripe cherry and red berry, savoury oak and a distinct minerality coat the wines structure core. Opens up wonderfully over time to reveal alluring florals and a svelte texture.... more »

CHOCOHOLIC PINOTAGE 2014
A delicious and elegant wine that delights the nose and palate with lovely ripe plum flavours with soft tannins and lingering notes of toasty oak characters. A wine that shows a lot of modern styling with the trademark Darling elegance!!.
The recent demarcation of the Darling district has led to a focus at Darling Cellars on wines which are terroir and varietal specific. The cool and temperate West Coast climate lends itself to a different micro- and mesoclimate which, along with the different types of soil, lead to unique grapes, which we guide into even more unique wines. Having 99% of all vineyards dry land and almost the same percentage as bush vine, this is as close to what nature intended for grapes to be as one can get.... more »
