Delaire means ‘from the sky’.
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.
Elegant with layered nuances of vanilla, peaches and honeycomb. A hint of minerality adds to lingering finish. No batonage or malolacic fermentation took place, in order to retain freshness. Maturation took place in 225 litre 40% new French barrels for 10 months.
