Named after Jo’s mother and made from the borderline extinct variety Darnekuša – only 1.5 ha in existence. Its delicate flavours, light colour and low potential alcohol make it a perfect rosé variety, herentopping out at 11%, with texture and palate weight derived from bâtonnage. The vineyard sits around 500 metres on a hill top, giving well ventilated and clean fruit.
‘Darne’ derives from a Turkish word, used to describe the moment between a wild party descends into a full on orgy. Curious naming for such a fine and delicate grape!
