About this Item

Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve, 2013
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

‘Planted in 2000 and sourced from vineyards between 320 and 340 metres, this pure Cabernet Sauvignon sees 80% new oak and is built to mature further in bottle. The coolness of the vintage shows in the finesse and balance of the wine. Floral, green herb and cedar wood favours are supported by tannin and acidity. Drink: 2017-25’ - Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2016, 94/100

‘Massively proportioned, inky and dense, yet 2013 shows delicate nuances and scented fragrance. 18 months in mostly new oak add subtle spice to perfectly modulated tannin texture and plush, ripe fruit.’ - Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2016, 4.5*
