Delaire Graff Estate
Delaire Graff Estate Review
This has to be one of the most spectacular settings of any winery in the country. Sit on the terrace of the tasting room or restaurant and look past a screen of oaks to the valley below and the majestic crags of the Groot Drakenstein and Simonsberg mountains. It's an ideal place to stop for lunch, although at the time of writing the restaurant had just opened so hasn't stood the test of time. It's not designed for children under 12 so don't expect fish fingers and fries on the kids' menu. The range of wines is limited, but this has allowed it to focus on upping the quality. The Bordeaux blend Red Blend has a splash of Shiraz, which makes an interesting change, and the 2007 chardonnay is very elegant with fresh lime and creamy butterscotch flavors. There's a boutique hotel in the works.
