"From an estate based in Stellenbosch, owned by diamond merchant Laurence Graff, this wine grows farther north, in Swartland, on 30-year-old dry-farmed bush vines. It’s luscious, with orange freshness and tangy depths of flavor, the wine’s earthiness lending a dark and meaty tone. Serve it cellar temperature with braised rabbit or roast goat."
"Light golden wheat colour. Layered expressions of citrus and tropical fruit with subtle layers of honey and almonds in the background. Balanced and superbly structured, the flavours are complimented by a delicate minerality." - Winery
"The combination of Maritime and mountain is a very unique terroir, and here in Stellenbosch it creates our award-winning Delaire Graff wines. A cooling Atlantic sea breeze washes over our steeply sloping vineyards giving us such a rich intensity of fruit.
Delaire Graff Estate wines rank among the most prestigious in the Southern Hemisphere. Our unique terroir, on the crest of the panoramic Helshoogte Mountain Pass is something our ambitious winemaker explores, harvest after harvest.
A long, slow ripening season ensures world-class clarets and red wines big in structure with soft tannins and elegance. Our white wines capture the freshness of the harvest, while irresistible rosé and a sparkling Brut completes an elegantly balanced portfolio. We are proud to have achieved First Growth status in South Africa – reward for creating our country’s most desirable wines on first pressing." - Winery
