Region: Stellenbosch, South Africa
Delheim Grand Reserve 2017
90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc
The wine is barrel matured for 18months in 300L French oak barrels. Only finest barrels are selected for the Grand Reserve Blend.
Dark ruby red colour with a complex nose of dark fruits dominated by blackberries and blackcurrant followed by notes of tobacco and tomato leaf, fresh lead pencil shavings and cassis. The palate is elegantly poised with dark red fruit and a smooth chalky tannin finish which shows true to the area.
Careful cellaring will allow this wine to age gracefully for up to 15 years.
