Lamb for Easter dinner needs a big, bold wine.

Delheim – the well-respected Stellenbosch wine estate – has just released this Delheim Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 vintage – which has already claimed Gold at Veritas 2021 and awarded 91 points by Master of Wine Tim Atkin.

“The wine shows classic Stellenbosch Cabernet Sauvignon characteristics on the nose,” says winemaker Roelof Lotriet. “There’s the lead pencil shavings, tobacco leaf and blackcurrant, which follow through on the palate with an inflow of ripe red-berries and fine tannins. Its finish is long and silky,” adding that it will continue to improve long after vintage.

You’ll find it for R250 a bottle at delheim.com/shop-online
