Darling Cellars are proud members of South Africa's Old Vine Project (OVP), the first project of its kind in the world, certifying the authenticity of wines stating to be made from old vines and therefore protecting these mature vines for future generations. It allows producers to put a Certified Heritage Vineyards seal on bottles of wine made from vineyards that are thirty-five years and older, stating the planting date for added interest. Darling Cellars have two wines that qualify for inclusion: Old Bush Vine Chenin Blanc (Platter: 4.5*) hails from vines planted in 1980, while the OBV Cinsaut (Tim Atkin MW: 93 points) is made from vines planted in 1978.
Truly, 2019 will sit alongside the greatest vintages the Barossa has seen this century.
