Delheim’s Cellar, situated in the Simonsberg Ward in Stellenbosch, South Africa, is family owned and produces a wide range of internationally acclaimed wines.

Chardonnay grapes from a vineyard named “Akkerboom” on Delheim was harvested, the vines being approximately 20 years old and low-yielding.

Once harvested, the grapes were stored in a cold room set to 8-10°C to cool. The grapes were then whole bunch pressed in crates which allowed for a more delicate extraction and therefore an elegant mousse. The yeast used was without flavour and fermentation took place in cool temperatures at 14°C-16°C. Primary fermentation was 6-8 weeks in tank.

The juice was then bottled for secondary fermentation which we opted for 28 months on the lees in bottle prior to disgorgement. Light dosage was done to make it the sophisticated brut it is.
