About this Item

Laurence Graff 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.
The crown jewel is produced in honour of the proprietor, assembling the very finest from the incredible estate.

Critics Ratings

‘2011 has the makings of an icon: complex, layered and individual, yet classic in form and structure. Barrel selection from Cabernet Reserve, with dashes of Malbec and Petit Verdot; produced only in best vintages.’ - Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2015, 4.5* 

‘A barrel selection from the Cabernet Reserve, only 1 400 bottles were made. There’s 3% Petit Verdot and 2% Malbec in the mix and the wine was matured for 20 months in French oak, 80% new. Includes 5% of the 2012 vintage for extra verve. Lovely aromatics – cassis and redcurrant, a slight and entirely attractive leafiness, violets, vanilla and cigar box. Lithe on the palate with pure fruit, fresh acidity and firm but fine, optimally ripe tannins. Impeccable.’ - Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 95/100
