Location of Stellenbosch Vineyards

 


2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve
Delaire Graff Estate

The 2011 vintage was challenging due to weather conditions throughout the season which resulted in concentrated flavours.

The grapes were handpicked in the fresh hours of the early morning from Delaire’s mountain vineyards.  All grapes were extensively hand sorted to ensure only the best quality is used for wine making.

The wine was produced with meticulous care - hand sorting, whole berry fermentation, gentle extraction of fruit, basket pressed, matured in 80% new French oak barrels and a rigorous selection to decide on only the best.

Appellation
Stellenbosch

Tasting Notes
