  • Alcohol By Volume


The family-owned Delheim estate is one of the top wineries in South Africa with a firm commitment to social and enviornmental sustainability programs. Their Chardonnay Sur Lie is an elegant, Burgundian-styled wine with the 9 months oak ageing adding a silkly texture and delicate toasted hazelnut note without masking the ripe pear and red apple fruit. This is as good as oaked Chardonnay comes and would age gracefully for 5 at least years.

In the vineyard

The vines were planted on Clovelly soil in 1989 on the South Western slopes of the Simonsberg mountain at 420 meters above sea level. All grapes are hand harvested for maximum care.

In the winery

Cold fermented in steel tanks to 16C and then transferred to 225l French Oak barrels(35% of which are new) to complete fermentation as well as malolactic fermentation. Matured for 11 months on primar y lees in the barrels. Batonage (stirring of the lees) once a week from malolactic
fermentation (for duration of 4 months in total)

Press & Awards

  • Wine of the Week
    This is the rich and full bodied oaked style of Chardonnay. Smoky scents have a grilled hazelnut and a butterscotch sauce note. The ripe apple and mel on flavours are enriched by the oak’s nutty and white pepper spiciness. Resting the wine on its lees (spent yeast cells) adds a savoury depth and a cr eamy texture. A white rich enough to match with roast pork and apple sauce. 2010: Liam Campbell
