STORY: The Delheim winery is not only a household name in South Africa, but especially in Germany. No wonder, since the owner, 'Spatz' Sperling, originally comes from Tettnang on Lake Constance.
AGING: Handpicked in the vineyard. Natural fermentation at low temperatures. The pomace cap is pumped over several times a day. 18 days of maceration. Aging takes place in 300 liter French oak barrels (of which 31% are new) for 17 months.
AROMA: Dense purple garnet. Fruit aromas of red and black currants dominate the nose, along with a little spearmint.
RATING: Overflowing fruit and the finest, polished tannins on the palate. Supple, charming, opulent and incredibly dense.
SERVING RECOMMENDATION: Braised veal cheeks, sauerbraten, game dishes.
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. So 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!
