DURBANVILLE HILLS MERLOT
Medium to full-bodied wine with sweet fruits on palate, rounded off with silky tannins and a full mouth feel that has a prolonged after taste.
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.

The Marqués de Riscal Viña Collada Rioja impresses with its elegantly dry taste. It was placed on the bottle with only 2.3 grams of residual sugar. This is a real quality wine that stands out clearly from simpler qualities and so this Spaniard naturally enchants with the finest balance in all dryness. Excellent taste does not necessarily require sugar. This velvety red wine is impressive and multifaceted on the palate. Thanks to the balanced fruit acid, the Viña Collada Rioja flatters with a soft mouthfeel, without letting it miss juicy liveliness at the same time. The finale of this well ripened red wine from the wine-growing region of La Rioja, more precisely from the Rioja DOCa, finally convinces with considerable reverberation.
The Viña Collada Rioja by Marqués de Riscal presents a dense ruby red colour. The nose of this Marqués de Riscal red wine reveals all kinds of shade morals, mulberries, plums, plums, plums and black cherries.

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.
