SEASALTER 2021
Sauvignon Blanc

TASTING NOTES
The Seasalter is wonderfully expressive on the nose and the palate with captivating notes of black current, stone fruit and green apple together with hints of fynbos and kelp, sea-breeze and a touch of oak. Rich, layered and long, this subtly powerful blend is intense but not weighty: an elegant well-balanced wine showing typical  Darling minerality, vibrant acidity and some leesy complexity before a saline finish.
