DURBANVILLE HILLS COLLECTORS MERLOT
Inspired by Cape Town’s radiant energy and creative demeanour, our new premium offering – The Collector’s Reserve – is a unique range specially crafted by our winemakers using only the finest grapes from Cape Town’s best vineyards.
The cheery red and white candy-striped lighthouse in Green Point with its foghorn, affectionately known as “Moaning Minnie”, is well-known for guiding ships along the misty Cape coast. These misty, cool climate conditions develop the Merlot’s unique character, displaying notes of mint and red cherry.
The grapes were sourced from top-performing vineyards situated in the Darling, Cape Town and Paarl wine-growing areas. The vines are grown in granite and shale soils, resulting in grapes with a higher natural acidity and resulting freshness. Open vineyard canopies bring about greater sunlight penetration of the grape bunches, contributing to a well-balanced acidity, in turn contributing to better tannin structure and fruit expression as well as deeper colour intensity
Colour Crimson red.
Bouquet A gentle whiff of coffee bean and fynbos with succulent plum and cherry aromas in the background.
Palate Packed with plum, black cherry and a touch of leather. Dried herbs and fynbos follow through to a velvety mouthfeel with a modest tannin grip. Elegantly structured and rewardingly long.
Baronne is Nederburg’s all-time favourite red blend and also one of South Africa’s most perennially popular and trusted wines.
This smooth-drinking Cabernet Sauvignon-led blend, which includes Shiraz, is the perfect partner to steakhouse fare.
COLOUR Deep ruby.
BOUQUET Alluring aromas of spicy dark blue and black berry fruit.
PALATE Juicy, soft and plush in the mouth with blueberry, cassis, a twist of pepper and cinnamon. Rich and textured.

Marqués de Riscal is one of the oldest Rioja wineries. Founded in Elciego (Álava) in 1858 by Guillermo Hurtado de Amézaga, from the outset it has been a point of reference in the winemaking business at both national and international level. Throughout its history, Marqués de Riscal has always been an innovating, pioneering cellar and reference in a constantly changing winemaking sector. Thay seek to make wines which are original, fresh, elegant and easy to drink. Since the beginning they have always had a clear vocation for creating the quintessential Spanish wines from Rioja. Barón de Chirel, the first “signature wine”, launched in 1986 was the precursor of the so-called “new era” of Rioja wines. This wine is produced on a very limited scale and only in the best vintage years, in which the character of the vineyard, the soil and the variety are expressed as part of a single, harmonious whole.
