I call De Grendel my favorite place in my area. I love the views, the food and the wine. If classic elegance is your thing, look no further than their distinguished and elegant De Grendel Wines, and specifically their Merlot.
It has a beautiful gem-like ruby colour with garnet flashing around the edges and first reveals a delicate all-sorts of berries – red, black and blue – followed by the alluring aroma of aniseed, cedar and liquorice which are all carried through on the palette. Their Merlot is perfect with Sunday roast lamb and a perfect match for lamb shanks.
About the farm
De Grendel is situated on the historic eponymous Cape farm dating back to 1720 and home to the Graaff family for five generations. A working farm, the tradition of cattle, sheep and horses, dates back more than a century. 3rd Baronet Sir David Graaff established the vineyards and modern wine cellar, a legacy now continued by his son, Sir De Villiers. Cellar master Charles Hopkins combines the most modern winemaking techniques with a nod to the farm’s heritage, eco-caring ethos and commitment to quality.
