Grangehurst Pinotage 350 Celebration Vintage
The property known as Grangehurst was purchased by winemaker Jeremy Walker’s parents in 1973. Eddie and Betty Walker emigrated from England to Cape Town, South Africa in 1952.
About 21 years later they decided to move to the rural environment of Stellenbosch, and named their small farm “Grangehurst” – after Betty’s childhood home “The Grange” in Birmingham, and “Hurst Close” – the name of the street in London where Eddie lived as a child. Coincidentally, “grange” means “a country house with farm buildings” and “hurst” means “on a hill” – a very apt description of Grangehurst.
On the nose: dark ruby colour with inviting aromas of red berries, ripe plums and subtle notes of vanilla, violets and sweet oak spice;
On the palate: full on the palate with soft, silky tannins. Recommended drinking 8 to 15 years from vintage. This wine pairs well with traditional bobotie, rosemary beef fillet, game pie or any dish you feel like enjoying on the day.
