Wine lover Richard Hilton is ecstatic
about this prestigious and sought after milestone. “I’m humbled and over the
moon that this wine is among the select few to be awarded 5 stars from the
thousand’s tasted in this year’s Platter’s
2014. Among my benchmark wines of the world are the Côte-Rôtie and Single
Vineyard or ‘La-La’ wines of the Northern Rhône. In tribute, I would like to
dedicate this wine to my personal human benchmark, my father, DGE Hilton.”
Specialising in the Rhône varietals of
Syrah and Viognier, Richard Hilton Vineyards continues to work alongside two highly
skilled growers, focusing on some prime vineyard blocks in both the Helderberg
and Elgin. Crushed since its inception in 2003 at Welgevallen Winery (owned by the University of Stellenbosch), the wines of Richard Hilton continue their vinification
and maturation at this historic cellar, where Dr Abraham Perold once made his
first studies in developing Pinotage in the 1920’s.
