LIMITED QUANTITIES! 100% Rhine Riesling The Simonsberg is named after the first Governor of the Cape, Simon van der Stel, after which Stellenbosch is also named. In 1699, he granted the freehold of this piece of land to Lourenz Kamfer, a German. It was originally named De Driesprong. The farm had various owners until Mr Hans Otto Hoheisen bought it in 1938 as a retirement home for himself and his wife Deli. DELHEIM comes from the German for “Deli’s home”. Delheim is owned by the Sperling family. The wine has a golden straw colour with a youthful green tint hue. On the nose aromas of apricot, honey, peaches with undertones of orange blossoms and delicious kumquat comes to mind. On the palate, flavours of the above mentioned fruit comes to mind and is complimented by a vibrant acidity. This wine would be able to mature for another 5 – 10 years from vintage.
