Darling Cellars Lime Kilns 2017
A fabulously fruity and complex wine. Most definitely a food wine!!
Lime Kilns were a familiar sight on the West Coast in years past. These kilns were used to burn mussel shells producing lime which was then used for varied applications. The agricultural use of lime is well known for the treatment of acidic soils making them more pH neutral, essential for the planting of various crops, such as wheat and vines. The premise behind this beautifully blended wine is returning to the roots of farming history and to take note of the part that nature plays in crafting a fine wine.
This wine shows a lot of tropical notes like peaches apricot and citrus fruit like orange peel. A seriously complex wine that has a great mid palate with good length and ageing potential.
