Laurence Graff OBE, chairman of Graff Diamonds, is world renowned as one of the great experts on gems. When he acquired the Delaire Estate in Stellenbosch in 2003, he knew how to cut and polish it to turn a rough diamond into a jewel of South African winemaking. Over the last 10 years, Delaire Graff’s winemaker Morné Vrey has produced award-winning wines from its own Bordeaux red grape varieties and Chardonnay, as well as vinifying Chenin Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc and others.
The combination of Maritime and mountain is a very unique terroir, and in Stellenbosch it creates award-winning Delaire Graff wines. A cooling Atlantic sea breeze washes over their steeply sloping vineyards giving their wines a rich intensity of fruit flavours.
