Delaire Graff, Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve 2018 Bottle size: 750mlSouth Africa, Stellenbosch
'"The most modern Cabernet Sauvignon we've ever made," according to winemaker Morné Vrey, this comes from a mixture of older and younger vines on the estate. Fresh and elegant, despite its 14.9% alcohol, this has grassy, refined aromatics, cassis and red cherry fruit, spicy 80% new wood and engaging palate length. Drink 2022-30.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2020, 93/100
'Owned by London-based diamond-industry kingpin Laurence Graff, this Stellenbosch property offers luxury accommodation, restaurants and a wide range of fine wines including this Cabernet. Red and black fruit plus some attractive herbal character on the nose, then a medium-bodied palate with fresh acidity and fine tannins. Drinking Window 2020 - 2026.' – Decanter, 91/100

|Producer information||The Delaire Graff Estate, surrounded by the breathtaking views of the Stellenbosch Valley, offers wine, art, dining and hospitality. Founded in the early 1980s, the estate has changed dramatically over the years. Delaire Graff’s award-winning wines rank amongst the most prestigious in the Southern Hemisphere. Their unique terroir, which is a combination of maritime and mountain, is something their ambitious winemaker explores harvest after harvest. The cool Atlantic sea breeze which washes over their vineyards is what gives their fruit a rich intensity.|
