About this Item

Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve, 2011
6 (1 x 6) 750ml
Nestled between majestic mountains on the Helshoogte pass, Delaire was established by John and Erica Platter in the early 1980s and is now one of the jewels in the Cape Winelands. Current owner, luxury brand mogul, Laurence Graff, has transformed the 'vineyards in the clouds' into a Cape art, hospitality and wine destination bar none. Under the auspice of winemaker Morne Vrey, Delaire Graff has amassed a host of awards and is listed as a ‘first growth’ producer by Tim Atkin MW.
Only 400 cases produced, the Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is now firmly established as one of the best from South Africa.

Critics Ratings

'There was no Cabernet Reserve in 2010 so it’s good to see this superb wine back in the portfolio in 2011. Sourced from a single block, it’s a benchmark Stellenbosch Cabernet Sauvignon, with dark, brooding plum and blackcurrant, polished tannins and effortless concentration. Drink: 2016-25' - Tim Atkin SA Report 2014, 94/100
