News and Events: Durbanville Hills Glitters with Gold Medals

Durbanville Hills has achieved no less than 10 gold medals at the Michelangelo International Wine & Spirits Awards, the prestigious competition now in its 26th year.

The judges for Michelangelo International Wine & Spirits Awards are hand-picked experts across seven continents. All entries are tasted blind and scored according to the 100-point internationally recognised OIV judging system.

Cellar Master Martin Moore says he is delighted that the gold awards were across all the wine ranges, including the recently release 10-year-old Merlot brandy.

“Each of the wines across our ranges, all reflect the cool climate location of the Durbanville area – they are fruit forward with exceptional balance and structure regardless of the cultivar. Our endless variety of slopes and hills, close proximity to the ocean with its cooling sea breezes and early morning mist, makes winemaking a joy!”

“Although many wines are produced for early enjoyment, we have found over the years that the longevity of our wines has rewarded us years after bottling. It’s for this very reason that I am so pleased to see that our Tangram wines, made for cellaring, has taken favour by the judging panel.”
