Durbanville Hills Durbanville Hills Rose
The Durbanville ward is considered one of the Cape’s coolest wine
regions, thanks to the sea breezes that drift inland from False Bay and
Table Bay and the late afternoon mists that bathe the slopes. These
conditions are ideal for the slow ripening of the grapes, allowing them
to develop their full-flavoured, intense character. Grapes are sourced
only from the shareholder growers, all of whom farm within the limited
appellation of Durbanville. Meticulous canopy management promotes
concentration of varietal flavour.
Cellar Master Martin Moore uses highly advanced cellar technology to
ensure optimal extraction of colour and flavour. Sustainable practices
include maintaining the disciplines imposed by International
Environmental Standard ISO140001 such as in the treatment of waste
water back to irrigation quality. In all its vineyards the growing
practices prescribed by IPW (Integrated Production of Wine) are
followed. These are designed to sustain natural resources. In addition,
the members protect 320 ha of endangered Renosterveld.
