Cabernet Sauvignon is the most familiar of the red grapes cultivated in the Coastal Region although the Chardonnay, Sémillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Muscat Blanc are also quite popular. This zone is divided into several different sub-regions as Cape Point, Paarl, Swartland, Tygerberg, Darling, Stellenbosch, and Tulbagh.
One of the most outstanding districts is Darling. It stands for a very cool climate, partially due to its location near the Atlantic Ocean. The cool and rainy weather facilitates the production during extended growing seasons which not only adds flavour and a certain acidity to the white wine grapes, but also help to obtain very deep, rich red wines with quite indiviual characteristics.
