The 2019 Delheim Edelspatz was named one of the Sweet Wines of the Year in Tim Atkin MW's 2020 South Africa Special Report.
It was also named Best Noble Late Harvest in the Winemag Prescient Top 20 Wines South Africa 2020 Report.

Tasting notes:
'Glorious botrytis dessert from riesling. 2019 powers out of the blocks with absolutely classic bouquet of marmalade, apricot, rye bread & honey. Rich & unctuous but lovely, lively acidity counters & sweeps through to lengthy finish. 9 months older oak; 2018 (4.5 stars, 93 pts) & previous unwooded. 12% alcohol. 375 ml.' – Platter's Guide, 5* (95/100)

'Why doesn’t the Cape make more sweet Rieslings? This stunning, botrytis-affected example has no oak, but masses of flavour, intensity and palate length. Citrus, orange marmalade and candied fruit flavours, all adding up to 163 grams of sugar, are freshened and embellished by acidity. Drink 2020-27.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2020, 95/100

'From a Riesling vineyard planted in 1985. Fermented and matured for nine months in French oak. Subtle notes of flowers, citrus and spice on the nose while the palate is fine and delicate – with pure fruit and bright acidity, this has a lovely tension about it.' – Winemag Prescient Top 20 Wines South Africa 2020 Report, 93/100

'eing one of the best noble rot vintages in over a decade, the wine shows classic botrytis characteristics on the nose and complimented with honey suckle, dried peaches and marmalade. The wine has a perfect balance between sugar and acid, layered with bright fruit and orange blossom. Enjoy now or cellar for up to 30 years.' – Winemaker
