Grangehurst Daylea Red Blend
We are on the 2011 vintage then moving on to the 2014. This is a firm favourite with many of our regular customers and a great wine for the money.
Below is the info for the 2014. This is a seriously good wine (despite the presentation!).
Cabernet Sauvignon (54%) Merlot (19%) Shiraz (16%) Pinotage (9%) Petit Verdot (2%) with 18 months in oak.
Below are the notes for the 2014 which is slightly different to the 2011 of which we still have a few cases. The blend is different and the oak ageing a bit less too. In case you prefer to try the 2014 before we sell through the 2011 please add a note in the reason for ordering tab to let us know and we will send you the 2014.
