Marques de riscal 150 Anniversary
Marqués de Riscal 150 Aniversario Gran Reserva is a wine which is only made in excellent vintages, originally created to mark the bodega’s 150th anniversary, as well as the history and winemaking traditions of the Rioja Alavesa.
In order to make the wine the mainly tempranillo grapes are harvested from some of the region’s oldest vineyard plots, with a minimum age of 80 years. These are generally venerable, low yielding vines which produce some of the most concentrated and flavoursome fruit of the harvest.
This wine combines modernity and tradition, offering complexity and freshness, power and flexibility; it is undoubtedly the most genuine expression of the Rioja Alavesa.

An elegant, medium-bodied wine with ripe red fruits on the palate, followed by hints of dark chocolate. Overall, an elegant tannin structure.
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 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.
