DC Rose Non-Alcoholic Wine

Brand

Darling Cellars is situated on the west coast of SA, approximately 1 hour’s drive from Cape Town. 1996 heralded a new era for the region of Darling with the establishment of the private cellar: Darling Cellars (Pty) Limited. With its unique terroir and the demarcation of the area as Wine of Origin Darling in 2003, the focus is on producing wines that are region and varietal true.

The cool and temperate West Coast climate lends itself to a variety of different micro- and meso-climates which, along with the different soil types, lead to unique grapes which Darling Cellars guide into unique wines. With approximately 95% of all the vineyards being unirrigated (dry land) and roughly the same percentage being bush vines (not trellised), this is as close as one can get to what nature intended for grapes to be.

This Non-Alcoholic Rose is a beautiful light salmon pink colour with ripe strawberries and sweet candyfloss on the nose, following through to a balanced palate with a lingering finish.

Will pair well with roasted chicken, a salmon salad, Italian food with a red sauce or stuffed mushrooms. Low in calories and vegan-friendly.

Vinification: Crush and destalk, 18 days fermentation at 14°C. Grapes and juice handled reductively to prevent oxidation and lock in fruitiness. Maturation: Left on lees for 2 months to add complexity. The wine is then De-Alcoholised by way of a gently spun cone technology. This is done under vacuum and at low temperature to ensure that the product retains its distinctive wine body, colour and flavour.

Awards: Silver at the 2021 Veritas Awards (SA's most prestigious wine competition)
