The latest release of Delheim Estate's icon Grand Reserve underscores the fact that 2020 is set to be one of the best red wine vintages the Cape has experienced in recent memory. Delheim Grand Reserve, the red Bordeaux-style blend from this renowned estate in Stellenbosch's Simonsberg appellation, has - since its maiden 1981 vintage - garnered a reputation as one of South Africa's foremost red wines with the Grand Reserve 2020 one of the best renditions of this wine in its illustrious history.

Mushroom-lovers and nature enthusiasts will this year once again have the opportunity to experience a week-end dedicated to foraging for wild mushrooms as well as attending a number of informative workshops centred around these delectable fungi on Delheim Wine Estate. Delheim's mountain pine forests are home to over 20 species of wild mushrooms, and from 16 to 18 June, this well-known wine farm on Stellenbosch's Simonsberg will be welcoming new and experienced mushroom foragers to get out there and collect their own mushrooms, as well as offering visitors the opportunity to attend workshops hosted by specialists in the fields of all things mushroom.

Edelspatz, the icon Noble Late Harvest Riesling from Simonsberg wine estate Delheim, reaffirmed its status as one of South Africa's leading Noble Late offerings by securing a five-star rating in the 2023 Platter's Wine Guide, the country's leading guide to ratings of Cape wines.

The top five-star rating was for Delheim's Edelspatz Riesling 2020, made from a Riesling vineyard block situated on the estate's Simonsberg terroir planted in 1985 that has been officially endorsed with Certified Heritage Vineyard status.

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.
