Delaire Graff Estate is proud to once again wish Morné Vrey (Winemaker), Kallie Fernhout (Viticulturist) and the whole Delaire Graff wine team a well-deserved congratulations on their latest success in the 2017 Tim Atkin South African Report in which Delaire Graff Estate has once again retained its First Growth status.
The Tim Atkin Report is the result of an extensive two month tasting process in which over 1 000 South African wines are compiled into a comprehensive classification and rating system. Inspired by the original 1855 Bordeaux Classification, the Tim Atkin Report identifies the top 150 wine producers in South Africa ranking them within the six classification tiers from First Growth to crus bourgeois.
With only the top fifteen vineyards achieving First Growth Status, Delaire Graff is elated to receive the top rank for a fourth time.
