We were introduced to Durbanville Hills’ new premium collection of wines called the Collectors Reserve at a media launch earlier this month.
At the launch, Vorster demonstrated how he uses new hand-coloured Linocuts by making some fun new prints in the cellar as we enjoyed a fine dining experience.
Think cable cars floating on butterfly wings, zebras running on the Cape’s misty clouds, and southern right whales floating above the Mouille Point lighthouse. The man is an artistic genius and I personally think this range, thanks to its carefully crafted, premium wines combined with Vorster’s design touch, will take Durbanville Hills to the next level.
The new wine range, consisting 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, has thus been designed as a collector’s item for wine and art lovers alike.
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 Vinotèque.
