DURBANVILLE HILLS PINOTAGE
This medium bodied wine evokes a sweet sensation on the palate with hints of dark cherries and plums. It is well balanced with silky tannins and lingering flavors of sweet wood spice.
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 proudly atop 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 grapes were sourced from top-performing vineyards situated in the Darling, Cape Town and Stellenbosch wine-growing areas. The vines are grown in granite and sandstone soils with good water-holding capacity, 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 Bright red.
Bouquet Rounded, svelte red fruit aromas with black cherries, chocolate and a hint spice.
Palate Black Forest Gateau in a glass! Flavours of cocoa and black cherry, with creamy texture and a hint of exotic masala spice and peppercorn. Refreshing and velvety.
This wine has been made using tempranillo and graciano grapes from an old vineyard cultivated inside the Finca de Torrea estate – from Elciego, where the Marque’s de Riscal City of Wine is located.
Finca Torrea is a modern-style wine with a very up-to-date profile, more fruit and less herby in character and aged for a shorter time both in the cask and in the bottle. It is a different style to the wines that Marque’s de Riscal have traditionally made, not only due to its modern character, but also for the image of its label showing the map of the vineyard plots of the Finca de Torrea, inspired by the line of design marked by the architect Frank O.Gehry with the Hotel Marque’s de Riscal.
It is an elegant, fresh wine, easy to drink yet with a certain air of gravity, which really shows the quality of our Elciego vineyards.
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.
