Delheim has just released a vegan-friendly Rosé and Sauvignon Blanc, perfect for a vegan household or to toast to a Meatless Monday.
The famous Stellenbosch winery used zero animal products traditionally used in winemaking to produce its 2018 Delheim Pinotage Rosé and Sauvignon Blanc.
An FYI if you didn’t already know: Animal products derived from milk, eggs, fish and including gelatine are used in a part of the winemaking process to refine and clarify the liquid before it is bottled. This limits the number of wines available to vegans and vegetarians. Delheim has however only used a type of clay called Bentonite and a plant-derived protein in the winemaking process of these two popular wines.
When it comes to pairing, it has been suggested that you try the Rosé with roasted rainbow vegetables with Chimichurri or a curried sweet potato and freekeh salad. The 2018 Delheim Sauvignon Blanc does well with a grilled aubergine bake as well as a variety of season-inspired salads.
These vegan-friendly wines are available at leading wine retailers and restaurants, as well as from the farm. They sell for around R75 for the Rosé and R79 for the Sauvignon Blanc.
Delheim Estate is in the Simonsberg sub-region of the Stellenbosch Wine Routes, on the Knorhoek Road, off the R44.
