Description

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.

Dark ruby red colour with a complex nose of dark fruits dominated by blackberries and blackcurrant followed by notes of tobacco and tomato leaf, fresh lead pencil shavings and cassis. The palate is elegantly poised with dark red fruit and a smooth chalky tannin finish which shows true to the area. Careful cellaring will allow this wine to age gracefully for up to 15 years.
