The Grenache is harvested from two vineyard blocks on Solms-Delta, one a VSP trellising system and the other a vine by stake method. The grapes were harvested in two pickings with one portion being picked earlier to obtain freshness and focus and the second portion riper for fruit flavour and intensity.
Celebrating Solms-Delta’s rich history, this wine is nicknamed “Lekkerwijn”. The back label tells the story of the farm adjoining Delta, now largely incorporated into it. The first owner, Henri l’Ecrévent, was granted the property in 1690. Locals, unable to pronounce his name, solved the problem by dubbing him Arie Lekkerwijn. He was slain nine years later by the first owner of Delta, Hans Silberbach, who then took flight and was never seen again.
