Onyx is a boutique wine label, now sold as Daring Cellars Premium range, produced by Darling Cellars on the west coast of South Africa, close to Cape Town. The grapes for the wines are sourced from various growers within the Groenkloof vineyard area, known for its diverse soil types and favorable microclimates. As Onyx, the wine was originally named for the deep black, semiprecious stone found in the granite bedrock in the vineyard’s soils. These premium wines are made from hand-selected grapes, carefully monitored in the cellar with regular evaluations to ensure quality.

  • Terra Blanca Onyx 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Mint, dried berry fruit and strawberries in cream greets the nose along with notes of toasted nuts and leather. Lots of red cherry fruit pops on the entry here along with some spicy earth, toasted nut, and sagey herb notes. This is broad and wide open today, expansive on the palate and transparent with fruit that is decidedly in the red end of t... Read More

  • Pine Ridge Onyx 2005

    Snoothrank:

    Interesting wine. A lot more earthiness and funk than the cabs from Pine Ridge. Deep colour and aromas led me to believe this would be a heavier wine but it was softer and had mild tannins. It might need to age a bit. Read More
