Hey wine lovers we have some good and exciting news for you!! Delheim Estate, nestled on the prime slopes of the Simonsberg, has released the latest vintage of its flagship bottling – a wine at the apex of the estate’s red wine portfolio: the Grand Reserve 2014. Crafted vineyard-to-bottle with the specific intention of being the most exceptional expression of the harvest, the Delheim Grand Reserve is an eagerly anticipated red wine of the highest quality.
Both Delheim and the Stellenbosch region are globally recognised as being home to South Africa’s most highly acclaimed Cabernet Sauvignon wines. This has made the Delheim Grand Reserve a sought-after collector’s item since the range was established in 1981. The vines that produced the Cabernet Sauvignon grapes for this wine are planted in such a way as to make optimal use of the terroir and climate. Grapes are picked by hand and bunch selection takes place in the vineyards before proceeding to the cellar for meticulous vinification.
“After 16 months of maturation in French oak, the wine emerged beautifully,” says Treurnicht. “In the glass, it’s deep ruby red with aromatic notes of mulberry, cassis and spice that keep evolving, changing from red fruit to darker fruit with savoury notes.” “On the palate, there’s great structure and velvet, mouth-coating tannins, with flavours of prune and red fruit that linger in the finish – just perfect to be enjoyed by itself or with a well-prepared dish of venison roast.”
The Delheim Grand Reserve 2014 is available for R285 a bottle at the Delheim winery as well as top end restaurants and wine boutiques. Make sure to get yourself a bottle or two of this amazing wine!
