Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 92
James Suckling

Notes of ripe black fruit, cigar box, gunpowder and pine cones. Full-bodied with firm tannins and delicious fruit. Showing hints of ripe plums and pepper. Long, chocolatey finish. Sustainable. Drink or hold.

WS 90
Wine Spectator

Rich notes of roasted fig, boysenberry coulis and toast are set in this full-bodied red, with aromatic accents of rosemary, iron and smoke. Grippy tannins provide good cut, yet are well-meshed with the expressive range of flavor. The lightly juicy finish echoes the ripe fruit. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Merlot and Malbec.

Delaire Graff, South Africa
Delaire Graff Estate Reception Corridor Winery Image

Ranked the best winery in Africa and 14th in the world (World’s Best Vineyards 2020) Delaire Graff Estate is the epitome of luxury situated in Stellenbosch in the heart of South Africa’s most historic and prestigious wine region. Founded by Simon van der Stel in 1679, Simon brought a sound knowledge of viticulture, the art of wine making – fostering a tradition that has grown from strength to strength through the centuries. In 1982 John Platter, well known wine writer, bought Delaire, then known as Avontuur. Looking at the magnificent view, he decided to rename the farm Delaire Estate, meaning “From the Sky”. Laurence Graff, Chairman of Graff Diamonds International acquired the estate in 2003 and vowed to transform it into South Africa’s most desirable art, hospitality and wine destination. 

Winemaker, Morné Vrey, aims for red wines that are big in structure with soft tannins and elegance, and white wines which capture the freshness of the harvest. Delaire, known for its high altitude vineyards, excellent soils and cooling sea breezes, is situated on the crest of the panoramic Helshoogte Mountain Pass, overlooking the Banhoek Valley. The 44 hectare vineyard is framed by the mighty Simonsberg and Groot Drakenstein Mountains. With its rugged mountain slopes, Delaire experiences variances in altitude which range from approximately 300 to 500 m above sea level. This creates microclimates conducive to making multi-layered, complex wines.

Stellenbosch Wine

South Africa

South Africa’s most famous wine-producing district, Stellenbosch, surrounds the historic town with the same name; fine winemaking here dates back to the late 1600s. Its valleys of granite, sandstone and alluvial loam soils between the towering blue-grey mountains of Stellenbosch, Simonsberg and Helderberg have the capacity to produce beautiful wines from many varieties. The climate is warm Mediterranean, tempered by the cool Atlantic air of nearby False Bay.

Perhaps most well-known for its Pinotage and Bordeaux blends, Stellenbosch also produces noteworthy wines from Syrah, Chenin blanc, Chardonnay and Sauvignon blanc. The district’s wards—Banghoek, Bottelary, Devon Valley, Jonkershoek Valley, Papegaaiberg, Polkadraai Hills and Simonsberg-Stellenbosch—all produce distinctive wines from vines with relatively low yields.

View all products

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the best of these are densely hued, fragrant, full of fruit and boast a structure that begs for cellar time. Somm Secret—Blends from Bordeaux are generally earthier compared to those from the New World, which tend to be fruit-dominant.
