Wine Advocate 91 points - The 2013 Delaire Graff Chardonnay, picked early in the morning and matured in 40% new French oak for ten months, has a complex bouquet, quite earthy at first with hints of dried honey, beeswax and jasmine. The palate is well-balanced with good weight on the entry, well-judged acidity and a harmonious tropical fruit and mineral-tinged finish that is very satisfying. Excellent - perhaps the best from Delaire Graff Estate. (Oct 2014)

Delaire Graff Estate is 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. Today, with two outstanding restaurants, a state-of-the-art winery, exclusive Lodges, a destination Spa and two luxury boutiques, the transformation of this piece of paradise is complete.
