A black fortified shiraz, with raisin and toasted almond aromas on the nose, dark bitter chocolate on the pallet, with a medium sweetness and well rounded finish. An innovative approach to fortified wine; not a traditional Port. Wood matured for 3 months, to retain the primary fruit aromas, in mostly new French oak.

Slightly sweet, this petillant (lightly sparkling) wine is the Cape’s improvised fusion of Italy’s Lambrusco with Australia’s sparkling shiraz. We use early-harvested Shiraz grapes because we want fresh acidity and low alcohol (this one only has 9.5%). Fermentation is slow, with a touch of wood, and the bubbles amplify the wine’s berry flavours. Served chilled.

A light sparkling shiraz, refreshingly fun and bubbly on a sunny Cape Town Summer's day. Solms Delta is outside the village of Franschhoek in the heart of the Cape Winelands.

This is our flagship wine. A totally new take on Shiraz. An extraordinary rich wine.  Deep Concentrated and tannic. Smoky oak flavours. Great to drink now, will mature superbly over many years. The grapes were desiccated on the vine, then after harvest were fermented as whole bunches, together with the stalks. After fermentation it was matured for 15 months in new French oak.

Solms-Delta Africana - A Shiraz desiccated on the vine

An oak-matured blend of Shiraz, Mourvedre, Grenache and Viognier. A dry rosé, complex and full-bodied with intense fruit flavour and an elegant finish. Alluring deep salmon colour. This wine is not a by-product of bleeding of grapes for red-wine concentration, but is made from grapes specifically selected for the production of a rosé of the highest quality.

Solms-Delta Lekkerwijn - An oak matured dry Rosé

A classic Rhône-style blend of Shiraz, Mourvedre, Grenache, Carignan and Viognier, with a twist: a portion (18%) of the Shiraz was desiccated on the vine. Only the skins of the Viognier were used, fermented till dry and left in the dark for three weeks. Matured for 13 months in mostly new French oak. Dark colour, intense flavours, dried orange peel aromas. Great food wine with ageing potential.

Solms-Delta Hiervandaan A classic Rhône-style red blend

This golden, aromatic blend of Viognier, Grenache blanc and Roussanne is “the real deal”. Classic in every respect, it’s oak barrel-fermented, with intense fruit, layers of complexity and a lingering finish. Golden-rich, aromatic and fruity wine, with lingering complexity and well-integrated tannic structure. This is a very remarkable white wine made in a red wine style.

Solms-Delta Amalie - A dry white Rhône-style blend

An innovative red Cape blend, mainly Pinotage, blended with various Southern European varieties. This wine is about as diverse as the people of the Cape, with spicy, exotic flavours and a clean, dry finish.

Solms-Astor Langarm A red Cape blend

In a new 500ml bottle, you can drink this surprisingly dry Muscat wine by itself or before or after dinner. It has a good structure, intense aromas, judicious oak, and a lingering finish. A blend of Muscat d’Alexandrie (64%) and Muscat de Frontignan – Muscadel (36%). The grapes were desiccated on the vine, pressed as whole bunches, fermented after settling and matured for ten months in seasoned French oak. This is a truly unique ‘meditation wine’.
