Delaire Graff

 – SPECTACULAR!

The views, the gardens, the decor… even the driveways are just beautiful!
I have yet to have the pleasure of dining in the restaurant but that may have to be for a VERY special occasion as I think the prices are a little above average.  But the food did look amazing!
The tasting is limited and again above averagely priced so given that we were seven people we opted to buy one bottle of WHITE and one bottle of RED and do our own tasting while enjoying the ambiance and scenery.
Definitely worth a visit.

My quick wine notes below…

2011 DELAIRE GRAFF COASTAL CUVEE SAUVIGNON BLANC
I thought this wine had lovely peach and apricot smells and flavours.  A very full tasting Sauvignon Blanc with hints of lemon and lime.  A lovely light and crisp wine.  Very nice!

2009 DELAIRE GRAFF BOTMANSKOP
A Bordeaux blend with Shiraz.  A full bodied wine.  I could definitely taste the spice of the Shiraz coming through with a good berry blend.  It seemed to have a somehow dry, but berry finish.
An excellent blend of Cab Sauv, Cab Franc, Merlot and Shiraz.  You really can taste the influence of each. Very nice RED wine!
