About this Item

Grand Reserve, 2001
6 (1 x 6) 750ml
The inimible ‘Spatz’ Sperling firmly established Delheim as one of the finest Simonsberg producers. Pioneering initiatives include the first “wine route” in 1971. Delheim has also seen some famed wine makers like Kevin Arnold, Chris Keet and Philip Costandius producing various vintage of this long living Cabernet Sauvignon based signature wine.

Critics Ratings

Enduring success for this trail blazing flagship; sometimes blended, latterly 100% cabernet latest 01 with 2% merlot. Classy cassis, tea-leaf & cinnamon bouquet; darkly handsome fruit cosseted in fine oak,’ Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2005, 4*

Subtler, more primary aromas of cherry, currant and tobacco. Then sweeter and fresher in the middle palate, with more raspberry fruit showing. With more buffering flavor, the tannins come across as finer and the flavors linger longer.’ Stephen Tanzer, Vinous.com (March 2005). 88+/100
