Durbanville Hills is proud to announce the launch of its latest premium collection of wines, the Collectors Reserve. Inspired by Cape Town’s radiant energy and creative demeanour, the new premium offering boasts a unique range of wines that has been skilfully crafted using only the finest grapes from Cape Town’s best vineyards. Paying homage to its name, this exclusive range has been designed as a collector’s item for both wine and art lovers alike.
According to Martin Moore, Cellar Master at Durbanville Hills, this new offering is nothing like any range they’ve ever released before, as it not only appeals to the palate and nose, but the visual and touch senses too. “To complement each of the wines in the range, Durbanville Hills commissioned a vibrant Capetonian artist – Theo Vorster – to pair each wine with a prominent landmark in Cape Town, most of which are visible from the winery. “To cement the brand’s ethos of connecting the city’s vibrant culture to the winelands, Durbanville Hills handpicked seven proudly Cape Town landmarks and asked Theo to impart his vision of these landmarks onto each bottle. With each landmark comes a distinctive story which can be found on the back of the respective bottles.”
The winemaking team is extremely proud of the new range produced especially as it went on to fetch multiple awards* at the recent Gilbert & Gaillard Awards – an internationally acclaimed wine awards ceremony. “Prior to launching into the market, we are already receiving such positive feedback on this range and look forward to its success among the consumer market.”
I attended the launch of the Collectors Reserve Range a few weeks ago and was treated to a delicious food and wine pairing.
Moore adds that the range consists of The Cape Mist Sauvignon Blanc, The Cape Garden Chenin Blanc, and The Cableway Chardonnay, as well as The Lighthouse Merlot, The Promenade Pinotage, The Castle of Good Hope Cabernet Sauvignon and The High Noon Shiraz.
To start, four varietals in the range (Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Merlot and Pinotage) will be available at select retail stores and the other three (Chenin Blanc, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon) available to purchase at Durbanville Hills or via vinoteque.
