High on the slopes of the Simonsberg Mountain, 50 km from Cape Town, lies the family-owned Delheim estate. The Sperling family has been making wines of character for many decades and takes a holistic approach to community and land, to wine making and to enduring good business practices. Their aim has always been to nurture a strong culture of sustainable development on the farm and within the community that grows up and works together on the Delheim estate.
Winemaking – Hand-picked and whole bunch pressed. Fermented in French Oak barrels, a combination of 500l and 225l – 15% new wood. Wine left on its lees for nine months, before blending and bottling.
Tasting Note: The wine showcases a light vibrant golden colour with citrus and stone fruit on the nose and subtle oak spice. The palate is well balanced with a medium bodied structure with the creamy notes from the oak not overpowering the elegant fruit ending on a fresh acidity note.
