Founded by the baronet Sir David Graaff (1859 - 1932). De Grendel is an historic Cape farm owned and managed by the Graaff family. The Cape Town wine growing region is distinguished by a cool growing climate and provides slow ripening fruit. This results is wines of a distinctive character and expressive style.

A complex wine with layers of minerality and an ensemble of lime, tropical fruits, and fresh herbs. A well-balanced and delicate palate with a layered, long finish.

Enjoy this wine with Cajun-spiced calamari tubes, grilled cod, goats cheese, or tempura prawns.
The 2022 vintage is ready to enjoy now but has an ageing potential of 3 to 4 years to allow for a richer wine with well-integrated acidity to develop.

The Vintage
During 2021, a late winter and spring lead to a late harvest season in 2022 with 3 small compact heat waves in January. Above average crop, quality and quantity wise.

Viticulture
The Sauvignon Blanc vineyards are planted in well-drained blue shale at 200 meters above sea level on the Western slope of the Tygerberg, 7 kilometers from, and in sight of, the Atlantic Ocean.
Employing the VSP trellis system, a typical harvest produces 7 to 8 tons per hectare.

Vinification
Using analysis, phenolic ripeness and flavor compositions, grapes were handpicked in batches over a three-week period. When crushed, the grapes delivered a yield of 630 liters per ton. Following 6 hours skin contact, the juice was settled, racked and inoculated to ferment in tank at 14°C for 22 days. 80
days’ lees contact improved the wine’s flavor and body, followed by blending, protein stabilization, cold stabilization, and bottling.
