The Cape Mist is a natural phenomenon in Cape Town, stealthily moving in as a cool Atlantic breeze over Table Bay. The mist provides a soft blanket over the surrounding slopes and creates the perfect cool climate conditions associated with the Durbanville terroir. These conditions are crucial in creating the perfect environment to grow Sauvignon Blanc, renowned for its abundant and lingering tropical fruit flavours and balanced freshness.
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
With its beauty, refinement and typicity, Marqu?s de Riscal Limousin represents the most outstanding qualities of the Verdejo grape, famed for its fragrance, fresh acidity and ageing potential.
This wine is made from grapes from bush vines 40 to 50 years old, cultivated in the best gravel soils of the highest terraces of the district of La Seca, and vines and ungrafted pre-phylloxera vines from the Segovia zone. The clusters are collected by hand one by one and taken to the winery in 15-kilo crates to avoid oxidation as far as possible. After stabilisation in cooled stainless steel vats, fermentation takes place in 600 litre wooden vats and the wine is left to age on the lees for up to 8 months.
The result of this process is a white wine with a particularly beautiful style which displays the potential and versatility of Verdejo, as well as the amazing potential of Rueda as one of the regions for the classic Spanish white wine.
