Grand elder of South African Noble Late Harvest wines “was almost never made”

Renowned Stellenbosch estate Delheim has just unveiled the highly anticipated new vintage of Edelspatz Riesling - one of the wine world’s iconic Noble Late Harvests (NLH) and most consistently awarded wines since its inception in 1979. With this release, the 2020 Edelspatz Riesling undoubtedly takes its place in the pantheon of great wines having emerged from a season regarded as among the decade’s finest for noble rot expressions. Furthermore, it is the latest proud addition to a long line that may never have begun were it not for a chance meeting of two legendary winemakers.

Collector’s wine encompasses a spirit of tenacity and sense of humour

 One of South Africa’s most loved and quirkiest fine wines celebrates its 60th anniversary this year with the latest release by Delheim in Stellenbosch. What some first derided as a failure, the late Spatz Sperling resurrected to become a beloved choice of South African new wine lovers. He called it Spatzendreck.

Youth academy partnership to learn wine process from start to finish

Renowned Stellenbosch winery Delheim is partnering to create a milestone for graduates – some from previously under resourced areas - creating their own wine product, start to finish. Commencing with this year’s harvest, the group from the Pinotage Youth Development Academy (PYDA) will get a basic introduction from business plans to harvest, vinification, maturation and eventual own-brand wine release.
