The combination of the environment and the soils of Delaire Graff Estate, together with the sensitive interpretation of nature’s assets, forms the perfect blend for the creation of legends. Add to this the deep history of the region, Delaire Graff Estate’s pursuit of perfection and a philosophy that celebrates inspired synergies between these various threads and you will find vintages that showcase how extraordinary wines of the Cape can be. The Banghoek 2016 is thus set to add another golden thread to the rich tapestry of stories for both Delaire Graff Estate and the Stellenbosch wine region. A legend in the making.

Challenging conditions, including extended warm weather and little rainfall, led to a reduced crop in 2016. However, the dry conditions headed vineyards and grapes which were very healthy overall. Vines produced lower bunch masses with smaller berries and concentrated flavours promising good wines.

This wine was produced with meticulous care. Grapes were hand sorted. Whole berry fermentation and basket pressing ensured gentle extraction of fruit.

The wine was matured in 60% new French oak barrels for 16 months.

Food pairing
