High on the slopes of the Simonsberg Mountain, 50 km from Cape Town, lies the family-owned Delheim estate. Here the Sperling family has been making wines of character for many decades. Delheim produce a range of award-winning wines, led by the majestic Grand Reserve, which since its release in 1981 has been honoured with much prestigious recognition. A holistic approach to community and land, to wine making and to enduring good business practices is what sustains Delheim. The aim has always been to nurture a strong culture of sustainable development on the farm and within the community that grows up and works together on the Delheim estate.
This Chardonnay is light vibrant gold in colour with a green hue. Granny Smith apples, citrus, stone fruit and quince with subtle nuances of oak on the nose, follows through on the subtle, but well-structured palate. Elegant and well-balanced with a mineral touch on the finish.
Food matches: Pairs well with oily, flaky fish, chicken breast and soft or semi soft cheeses.
