Delheim Grand Reserve 1997

Strong scents of mint marks the nose. Vanilla and spicy fruits show in the mouth. This wine shows the typical upfront fruit character of the 1997 vintage and exhibits great complexity. A serious wine that merits careful cellaring for five years before true greatness develops, and ten years to reach its fabulous best.
