KES2,490The Manor House ultra-premium collection comprises single varietal wines made from some of Nederburg’s best-of-best fruit, inspired by the beautifully proportioned Cape Dutch manor house built in 1800 by Nederburg’s founder, Philippus Wolvaart.
This wine is made from Sauvignon blanc grapes.
The grapes were sourced from a single vineyard block in the Darling area. The block was harvested at two intervals based on phenolic ripeness. The vines, planted between 1996 and 2004, are grown in Tukulu and Oakleaf soils at altitudes ranging between 80m and 120m above sea level. The majority of the grapes grow under dryland conditions, on a vertical trellising system.
Aromas of zesty citrus and butterscotch on the nose with hints of orange blossom and dried apricot. An elegant, well-balanced wine that fills the mouth with sweet fruit, orange zest, leading to a fresh finish.
Nine leading vineyard owners in the Durbanville district joined forces with Distell to create Durbanville Hills with the aim of promoting the regional individuality of this prime wine-growing area. The striking Durbanville Hills cellar sits on the side of a series of rolling hills with magnificent views of Table Mountain and Table Bay – the very geography that lies at the heart of what makes the wines so unique
