Delaire Graff

2021 Chardonnay Banghoek Reserve, Delaire Graff

Western Cape, South AfricaVintage: 2020

Delaire Graff is one of the leading wine estates in South Africa and is situated on the top of the Helshoogte Pass in the Stellenbosch Wine Appellation. It looks down on the Banghoek Valley, and the West and East facing sides of the majestic Simonsberg.

Morné Vrey, the Estate’s Award-Winning Winemaker, has produced a seriously good wine with this 2020 Delaire Graff Chardonnay Banghoek Reserve.  In the glass it is buttery yellow with aromas of citrus, white fleshed peaches and smoked lime. The palate is rich and generous with flavours of sweet lemon, and stone fruit adding complexity.   Lots of intensity and appetising qualities.

The grapes for this wine come from the high-altitude terraces located on the steep slopes of Botmaskop Mountain. These terraces are frequently cooled by Atlantic breezes thus the estate can count on impeccable grapes that carry the intensityof fruit that is the hallmark of Delaire Graff wines.

Delaire Graff Wine Estate is noted for its high-altitude vineyards and unique terroir due to a lofty location on the crest of the panoramic Helshoogte Mountain Pass overlooking the vineyards of Stellenbosch. Originally a farm named Avontuur the estate was bought in 1982 by the celebrated wine writer and winemaker John Platter, who renamed it Delaire Estate, meaning ‘From the Sky’.

In 2003 ownership passed onto Laurence Graff of Graff Diamonds International Ltd, who then initiated a six-year redevelopment programme to transform the estate into the premium world-class winery, restaurant, hotel and spa that it is today. During the refurbishments, one of the most advanced cellars in the Southern Hemisphere was installed; this became operational in 2008 with the release of the first wines under the Delaire Graff label. In just three years, the Estate has been propelled straight into the top tier of South Africa’s finest boutique wineries.

Delaire Graff is a relatively small estate with only 22 hectares under vine, the focus of production has been on the varietals suited to the local terroir, namely Chardonnay and red Bordeaux varietals. The desire to add other classic Cape varietals to the portfolio sent the winemaking team in search of the finest and best-matched plots to the new varietals. The Shiraz vines are located closer to the ocean to benefit from the cooler climate, the Sauvignon is a blend of grapes sourced from four premium wine regions, and the Chenin is sourced from 35-year-old bush vines in Swartland. These long-term lease vineyards are managed year-round by the Delaire Graff viticulturist team.

Extensive bunch sorting of the grapes formed part of the quality management process. The grapes were whole bunch pressed and barrel fermented for 14 days. Maturation took place in 225 litre 40% new French barrels for 10 months. No batonage or malolactic fermentation took place, in order to retain freshness.
