Here’s a treat for wine-loving vegans
A pair of Delheim’s latest wine releases is sure to put a spring in the step of wine-lovers who are vegans.
That’s because unlike most other wineries, the famous Stellenbosch winery used zero animal products traditionally used in winemaking (products derived from milk, eggs, fish) to produce its 2018 Delheim Pinotage Rosé and Sauvignon Blanc.
The 2018 Delheim Pinotage Rosé is all pomegranate and cranberry, candy floss and blossoms on the nose, delicate red berry fruit on the palate, and is just perfect with roasted rainbow vegetables with Chimichurri or a curried sweet potato and freekeh salad.
The light green 2018 Delheim Sauvignon Blanc has aromas of tropical fruit, citrus and gooseberry, and you’ll taste green figs and lime. Drink it with a grilled aubergine bake (or grilled line fish for flexitarians) as well as a variety of season-inspired salads.
Both vegan-friendly wines are available at leading wine shops and are around R75 for the Rosé, and R79 for the Sauvignon Blanc.
