AGEING: Handpicked and soft pressing. Spontaneous fermentation, use of only wild yeasts. Aging "sur lie" for 7 months. The wine ages in French oak barrels for 7 months.
AROMA: Wonderful complexity thanks to natural fermentation. Aromas of grapefruit, orange and white peaches unfold on the nose with hints of savory and oak.
ASSESSMENT: On the palate, this Chenin exhibits refined and elegant restraint with pleasant tannins and sweet fruit. The perfect complement to a variety of dishes.
SERVING RECOMMENDATIONS: Duck confit, fish with creamy sauces, pies, foie gras.
The Delheim winery is not only a household name in South Africa, but also in Germany in particular. No wonder, since the owner, 'Spatz' Sperling, originally comes from Tettnang on Lake Constance. He was one of the first to fight for the development of dry wines in the Cape in 1951. Obsessed with the idea of producing red premium wines, he gradually bought additional vineyards because he noticed that only the white wine thrived at higher altitudes with more moisture. His talent as a winemaker and his belief in himself and his new homeland of South Africa gave him the energy to rise to enormous heights and join the ranks of South Africa's best producers. Today the winery is run by his son Victor and his charming daughter Nora. Great value is placed on sustainability and ecology. They have created their own sewage treatment plant and ensure biodiversity by promoting the cultivation of native grasses and bushes around the vineyards. It goes without saying that they are also committed to helping the colored population who live on the winery. And should you ever want to visit the winery: be sure to visit the fabulous restaurant!
