Villiera Red Wines

The Villiera reds capture the unique combination of Old World and New World styles and have gained international approval for their well-balanced intensity and understated elegance. The predominant varieties are Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. As a Merlot specialist we have a premium Merlot on offer called Monro Merlot which proudly carries the family name of generations of Griers. We have now released a super-premium red wine called The Clan. The red wine range is completed by the Down to Earth, a Touriga Nacional / Shiraz blend.

Villiera Down to Earth Red 2019

An explosion of spice and dark berry flavours with the tannin caressing the palate. The extra dimension of integrated oak was all that was needed to complete the picture of a modern wine that illustrates the art of blending.

Domaine Grier Olympus 2014

Villiera Stand Alone Pinotage 2018

The wine is fruit driven with intense berry and violet aromas and is well structured. It has a grippy dry tannin, but in the sense of “morish”. The palate has really good weight and length with a good acidity.
