A Bold New Wine Released At De Grendel

De Grendel Wines Sir David Graaff First Baronet of Cape Town Red Wine Blend

New year, new wine! We are thrilled to announce that we have a new signature wine available at De Grendel. It is inspired by, and honours, Sir David Graaff, who went from being a poor shepherd boy in Villiersdorp to First Baronet of Cape Town. Sir Graaff (1st baronet), who died in 1931, was an extraordinary man and an iconic figure playing a vital role in the civil, economic and agricultural landscape of Cape Town during his lifetime. 

Each of the 3 344 numbered bottles Sir David Graaff, First Baronet of Cape Town 2013 carries his signature, the quality of the wine reflecting his high values. “The values of my great-grandfather serve still serve as a reminder to future generations to lead meaningful lives and contribute to society”, says his great grandson Sir De Villiers Graaff, the Fourth Baronet of Cape Town.

The Exciting Changes to De Grendel Restaurant's Menu

Are you ready for some food envy? Our restaurant team, Head Chef Ian Bergh and Sous Chef Garth Davids have been huddled in the kitchen for weeks dreaming up new dishes for our Winter Menu. We caught up with Garth to ask him to reveal what you can expect on your plate when you visit us. 

De Grendel Restaurant New Menu

Why did you decide to launch a new menu?

We wanted to change the dishes to reflect the produce available with the new season. We've really looked hard at how we can incorporate local and organic produce. It's good for De Grendel and the local suppliers. We had some new ideas we wanted to try out. The dish creation process is also about uplifting our trainees – we want to teach them how to create new dishes and think out of the box. 

What are two of the new signature dishes?

We've brought in a lot of smoked meat into our dishes. For example, we've got a smoked lamb shoulder which we're doing with a sweet melon labneh. We're excited about the sweet and smokey combination. 

We've also created a pulled duck dish with polenta. It goes with pickled ceviche, a blue cheese velouté, dehydrated basil, red peppers and mixed herbs. 

What's a new concept you've brought to the menu?

We're working with a lot of cured meat. We've been experimenting with the method sous-vide. You first vacuum pack the meat and then submerge it in a water bath and cook it on a low heat for 12 hours. It seals in the flavour and prevents meat drying out.

De Grendel Restaurant Aero

Best dessert?

It would have to be the chocolate "Aero". We make a homemade Aero using an airation method on a beautiful French chocolate. We serve it with chocolate mousse, milk chocolate ice cream and dolce ganache. 

How does the menu work with De Grendel wines?

We always create dishes to combine well with our wines. Our wines are quite bold so we've brought in bold flavours to stand up to them. We also use many of our reds in our sauces – we love the spiciness of the Shiraz and the boldness of the Merlot. 

De Grendel Restaurant New Menu

One of our beautiful new dishes comes in the form of a cheese course: Crumbed brie, torched goat’s cheese, blue cheese custard, HuguenotTomato chutney, cashew nut chutney, blueberry preserve, pineapple, fig, pomegranate, apple
Marbled rye, lavash

Our menu is based on classic, locally sourced ingredients, served in creative flavour combinations and served with a an inventive, modern edge.

"We like to surprise our guests, that’s why you’ll find that our menu lists only the ingredients with no indication of how your meal will be prepared or which ingredients dominate, of course, if you ask, we’ll gladly tell you more," says De Grendel Chef Ian Bergh.

De Grendel Restaurant Decor

We took our creative cue from the family farm house, blending it with the present with touches of De Grendel’s past.

De Grendel Wins Three Mundus Vini Medals

Three signature De Grendel wines have been awarded a MUNDUS VINI medal at the Spring Tasting of the Grand International Wine Award, held at the end of February. They are De Grendel Koetshuis Sauvignon Blanc 2016 (Gold), De Grendel Shiraz 2015 (Gold) and De Grendel Merlot 2015 (Silver).

De Grendel Wines Shiraz

Nearly 200 international wine experts judged almost 6,200 wines from more than 150 wine growing regions to select the winners. MUNDUS VINI is regarded as one of the leading competitions for sparkling, still and liqueur wines.

Says De Grendel cellarmaster Charles Hopkins of the De Grendel Koetshuis Sauvignon Blanc 2016 award:  “This is amazing news for a wine that’s made by a team effort – from vineyard managers, to me as the winemaker. It’s not been an easy 2016 vintage because of the challenging growing conditions which makes it even more special.”

The other Gold winner, De Grendel Shiraz 2015, has already won three local competitions in 2016 and did extremely well in some ratings on the local market. “For this wine to win a Gold award at Mundus Vini just gives the nod that this really is an exceptional wine,” says Hopkins.

De Grendel Wines Mundus Vini Awards

Regarding the Silver award for the De Grendel Merlot 2015, Hopkins says: “A lot of credit must go to our viticulture team for the very fine meticulous adjustments they made, such as leaf plugging, to ensure the ripe and sweet Merlot that’s been recognised by this competition.”

The De Grendel award-winning wines of the MUNDUS VINI Spring Tasting will now be presented to the trade audience at ProWein in Düsseldorf, 19-21 March 2017, at the MUNDUS VINI Tasting Area.

De Grendel’s award winning wines are available online at, at the De Grendel Tasting Room and at the De Grendel Restaurant.
