Grangehurst Pinotage 2005

4.5 Stars Platter 

Grangehurst Pinotage is fabulous - one of the best Pinotages on the market. All Grangehurst red wines are very good indeed. Jeremy has a real passion for Pinotage and is regarded as one of the finest Pinotage producers in South Africa. Rich, full bodied, full flavoured and super smooth with weight on the palate. A long lingering finish. This is excellent wine, and a great introduction to anybody who has not tried Pinotage before, or who has only had a mass produced cheap one, as they can put you off Pinotage for life (tasting like burnt rubber). This is a different animal altogether being a fabulous wine!

Grangehurst Pinotage

Platter 4.5 Stars for both 05 & 06

Aged 23 months in 75% French, 25% American oak.

Consistently awarded Platter 4.5 Stars each vintage, where they describe it as one of the best Pinotages on the market. We actually drank a bottle at the winery with Jeremy in April and have to agree.

Too many South Africans are drunk too young and rely on racy acidity to mask the prominent tannin. Grangehurst is a whole new experience for South African fans.
