DURBANVILLE HILLS CHARDONNAY
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
At the start of the 1970s, Vinos de los Herederos del Marqu?s de Riscal decided to add a white wine to its product range. After two years? trials, the Rueda region was the one chosen to make it.
Faithful to its pioneering spirit, Marqu?s de Riscal created a new, young, fresh and fruity white wine in a region more famous for its sherry-style amontillados and olorosos. Other bodegas followed us, and the appellation of the D.O Rueda was set up in 1980. In order to achieve the best white wine in the region, it is important to highlight that Marqu?s de Riscal was advised by winemakers from Petaluma (Australia).
The D.O. Rueda is one of the few European winemaking districts specialized in making white wines and in the protection and development of its indigenous variety, Verdejo.
