More Information - Nitida Calligraphy

A bold, yet beautiful wine. Like the new life that spring brings, and the winding rivers of summer, blueberries and red fruit burst forth along with rich dark chocolate notes. Whisps of winter surround you with flavours of cherry tobacco and warm spices that linger on your palate. This wine oozes depth and fullness.

Back Story & Wine Information

After the Veller family purchased the smallest of the Durbanville farms in 1990 Bernhard, a qualified engineer, took 2 weeks off work in 1992 to plant some vineyard, planning to only make a few barrels of wine. Three years later we won our first Gold Medal for our Sauvignon Blanc. In 2001 we were recognized as a benchmark Semillon producer. Helgard van Schalkwyk joined us in 2023 as winemaker and has continued the Nitida legacy of creating beautiful, award-winning wines that have a consistently loyal following. Our method is always one of minimal intervention and allowing the wines to show off our micro-climate. Here, handmade is truly an attitude.

This warm wine comes to life when paired with Seared Beef Brisket in Bourguignon sauce and the crackling of a cozy fire in the distance.
