Rubaiyat 2015

R 330.00

AWARDS  |  TASTING NOTES

The Rubaiyat is De Grendel’s flagship wine, first made in 2006 when cellar master Charles Hopkins was asked by Sir David Graaff to make an ‘iconic’ wine for the Estate.

A classically poetic Bordeaux style blend consisting of a quatrain of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc, the Rubaiyat was named after Omar Khayyam’s exquisite collection of 1000 Persian love poems from...

Amandelboord Pinotage 2016

R 190.00

TASTING NOTES

An exceptionally exciting new addition to De Grendel's flagship range, marking not only our cellar’s 10th anniversary, but also made to honour Sir De Villiers Graaff’s grandfather and namesake, the 2nd Baronet, Sir De Villiers Graaff.

Pinotage, especially if it was from the Durbanville Ward, was a favourite cultivar of his grandfather. The wine is inspired by fond memories of the Almond Orchard through which the young Sir De Villiers Graaff would go horse riding...

Op die Berg Chardonnay 2017

Our Chardonnay is made from grapes grown in a vineyard established on a family farm famous for apples and pears on top of the Witzenberg Mountain in Ceres.

Koetshuis Sauvignon Blanc 2017

R 160.00

AWARDS  |  TASTING NOTES

The crisp, grassy De Grendel Koetshuis Sauvignon Blanc was so named because the grapes used to make this wine are grown in the vineyard that sprawls out right next to the old coach house (‘koetshuis’ in Afrikaans) where the wagons of days gone by were once kept.

These grapes are blended with grapes from Darling to create the very fresh wine, with capsicum, asparagus and gooseberry flavours that was...

Sauvignon Blanc 2018

R 100.00

AWARDS  |  TASTING NOTES

The Sauvignon Blanc is more tropical and fruit-driven than the Koetshuis. It’s made from grapes grown in a vineyard which benefits from the cooling effect of gentle maritime breezes from the nearby ocean where the cold Benguela current runs northwards up the coast.

Pale straw in colour, with youthful lime green flashes around the edges, you will notice aromas of grapefruit and other tropical fruits like guava and granadilla...

Rosé 2018

R 70.00

AWARDS  |  TASTING NOTES

This beautifully striking wine, which resembles the ‘eye of the partridge’ in colour, combines coppery pink hues with a deeper reddish blush. Exceptionally floral and perfumed on the nose with enticingly sweet nuances of lemon and lime carried out of the glass by wafts of Turkish delight and candy floss.

The sweet delight on the nose precedes a dry entry that bursts into juicy strawberry preserve layered with hints...
