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 a rich intensity of fruit. Delaire Graff 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.

Faced with severe drought, the challenging conditions of the 2018 harvest resulted in one of the smallest yields in years. Yet despite the significant difficulties, the cooler ripening period and smaller crops produced berries with concentrated flavour and intense colour providing wines of notable quality.

The grapes received partial skin contact and were gently pressed, retaining freshness. Fermentation lasted 3 weeks at 15 ̊C. A 10% Semillon component was fermented in new French oak barrels for 3 weeks, adding additional body and dimension.

It was left on the lees for 5 months post fermentation, adding to the depth of flavour.
