About this Item

Botmaskop, 2011
12 (2 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.
Used as a lookout point for ships entering Table Bay harbour, the crest of this pass lay upon the slopes of the crucial peak named Botmaskop upon which Delaire Graff Estate is now nestled. Since the very first vintage In 1998, the Botmaskop has won numerous awards locally and internationally.

Critics Ratings

'Made from the five Bordeaux varieties (with Cabernet Sauvignon in the driving seat) and a splash of Shiraz, this is a typically intense, focused red showing flavours of mint, dried herbs, cassis, plum and chocolate and serious, age-worthy tannins. Intriguing. Drink: 2015-22'  - Tim Atkin SA Report 2014, 92/100

'Concentrated dark fruit aromas on '11 still a little demure, yet intense & harmonious, with finely etched vinosity. Will benefit from time in bottle.' 5 stars, Platter's SA Wine Guide 2014, 5*
