Durbanville Hills Chenin Blanc

750 ml

Winemaker's notes:

The Chenin Blanc fruit was sourced from Eastern and Western slopes on the outskirts of the valley. The total area is 5.5 ha from a supplementary irrigated, vertical positioned trellising system on gravel soil. The vineyard has no slope and is planted in the NW/SO direction. Production was 10t/ha and the fruit was monitored and tasted frequently for the desired ripeness. 

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.

Region: Cape Town, South Africa

Tasting notes

Light olive green on the robe. The concentrated fruit carries through from the nose onto the palate and blends seamlessly with prominent guava and citrus flavors. Full rounded wine with a lingering aftertaste. 

Alcohol content: 13.81%
