Bobbejaan & Ou Jong Steen produce yet another glowing ambassador
for holistic farmingThe latest vintage of Delheim Chenin Blanc Wild Ferment is out! The fourth vintage of this wine is renowned for the sublime intensity of flavour and aroma. The Chenin Blanc Wild Ferment 2017 forms part of a distinctive portfolio of well-crafted wines. In the glass, the wine shows a vibrant colour of pale straw with a green hue. Its sensory character is reminiscent of barley, apricots and peaches, underpinned by well-balanced acidity and oak. On the palate, citrus emerges and lingers.
"Sisters-and-sweet" will celebrate diversity and heritageSeptember is "sister"-time at Stellenbosch Hills. To celebrate Heritage Month this year, the popular winery has tweaked its famous Local-is-Lekker Biltong & Wine Pairing at its cellar – for a limited time only – to also feature a most traditional confection: the koe(k)sister. The quintessential South African dessert treat will be the kicker on the Stellenbosch Hills' experience that pairs its wines with biltong and droëwors.
HAND CRAFTED BOUTIQUE WINESBeautiful Cabernet vines usher you to the wine-tasting area of this boutique winery situated on the foothill of the Simonsberg Mountains. In 2008 the Du Toit brothers Stephen and Retief developed a boutique vineyard on Le Present; making the “Deux Frères Wines” dream a reality. Le Present nestles on the foothills of the Simonsberg Mountains in the Stellenbosch Winelands District.
A taste of the South African food cultureWe sneaked out for dinner that evening (normal for parents with toddlers) finding ourselves immersed in the energy of the Stellenbosch dining scene. The restaurant offers off street parking but you might want to park far away to take in the views and ambiance.
Cellar gems put the sparkle back into Meatless MondaysA pair of Delheim's latest wine releases is sure to put a spring in the step of wine-lovers who are vegans. That's because unlike most other wineries, the famous Stellenbosch winery used zero animal products traditionally used in winemaking to produce its 2018 Delheim Pinotage Rosé and Sauvignon Blanc.
