Diverse Flavours has teamed up with Delaire Graff Estate to distribute and develop its wine portfolio in global duty free. The wines will be presented at next month’s TFWA Asia Pacific Exhibition (stand D34).
The Delaire Graff Estate portfolio includes two Sauvignon Blancs, a Chardonnay, a Chenin Blanc and a Semillon/Sauvignon Blanc blend. The red wine offer features Botmaskop, the flagship Bordeaux blend, a Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve and the Laurence Graff Reserve.
Delaire Graff Estate, known as ‘The Jewel of the Cape Winelands’, is located in the heart of South Africa’s Stellenbosch region. The estate was acquired by Laurence Graff in 2003 and was transformed into a luxury destination before re-opening in 2009.
Delaire Graff Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 won the American Express trophy for best Cabernet Sauvignon and the trophy for Best Red Wine Overall at the prestigious 2016 Old Mutual Trophy Wine Show. Delaire Graff was also named Best Overall Producer.
Diverse Flavours Managing Director Anthony Budd said: “We are thrilled to add the Delaire Graff Estate to our established and premium wine portfolio. Within a short space of time we have had much interest in this prestigious portfolio, with Etihad Airlines listing the Banghoek Reserve Chardonnay for First and Business Class pouring.
“The Graff name is synonymous with quality, elegance, and excellence around the world, and it will be our job to tell the wine world about “The Jewel of the Cape Winelands”.
