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.

Vivid crimson and purple hues are complimented by layered aromas of plums, red currants, tobacco, black cherries and chocolate truffles. The mid palate is well supported by the complex array of fruit flavours – plums, mulberry and fresh cherries. Fine, velvety tannins underpin the fruit core and the wine shows impeccable balance and depth of flavours on the finish. Careful cellaring will allow this wine to age gracefully for at least 8 years from vintage.
