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.

A wet 2013 winter and unpredictable weather conditions during harvest presented a challenging vintage. However, the subsequent quality is fantastic and resulted in excellent extraction along with full, ripe flavours.

Extensive bunch sorting of the grapes formed part of the quality management process. The grapes were whole bunch pressed and barrel fermented for 14 days.

Maturation took place in 225 litre 40% new French barrels for 10 months. No batonage or malolacic fermentation took place, in order to retain freshness.
