Delicate crisp and refreshing wine
This Chardonnay was blended from a selection of the best wines from the ultra-ripe harvest. From the start, our aim was to produce a Chardonnay with intense fruit flavour and real character utilising quality grapes.
All fruit was harvested in the early hours and the juice pressed while the grapes were still cool to help retain aroma and flavour. The wine was tank fermented with an element of quercus fragmentus which added greater weight and complexity.
The wine shows classic ripe, rich butter and tropical fruit on the nose and soft, well integrated vanilla on the palate.
Rich in colour, fruity in taste with a slight pettilance and earthy presence. Picked early to be drunk by young. And often! Graca is the best selling white corked wine in South Africa, constantly selling more than 2 million litres per annum since 1990. Graca is a wine with a difference - in both taste and personality. It is widely known as the seafood wine. Graca is a friendly, exuberant wine. It has warmth, charm, a "cheeky" personality and a continental image. The blend appeals to both occasional and knowledgeable drinkers. The brand suits a fun-loving, outgoing lifestyle. Graca can be enjoyed either when dining with friends at a restaurant or alone at home. Graca is packaged in a most unusual bottle and label reminiscent of imported wines. The packaging has an upmarket presence with a difference.
Dr Alfred Baumgartner and his colleagues at The Bergkelder developed the original Grunberger in 1953. It was inspired by the famous German wines from the Rhine Valley, an area rich in romanticism and mythology. The clearly identifiable rounded shape of our "bocksbeutel" sets Grunberger apart from all other wines. Grunberger was positioned as the Prince of Wines and with its intense flavours and enhanting aromas it has the unique ability to excite the senses.
