The family owned Delheim estate perched high up in there Simonsberg range in the premium region of Stellenbosch has been making its high quality wines for decades. This Merlot is big, rounded and alive with ripe berry and sweet damson fruit.

In the vineyard

The juice from the handpicked grapes was fermented in stainless steel fermentors with the aid of selected yeast strains. The wine was racked and returned once daily, followed by two pumpovers per day, and then matured for 15 months in French oak (65% barrels and 35% staves).

In the winery

Hand picked grapes in a blend of primarily Merlot with a touch of Petit Verdot from Simonsberg ward, Stellenbosch.
