Tasting Notes
The Seasalter is wonderfully expressive on the nose and the palate with captivating notes of citrus, 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.
