The winery’s focus is on Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinotage and Merlot which have been crushed at Grangehurst since 1992. Other varietals – Shiraz and Petit Verdot – are now also produced and used in various blends.
There was not enough maiden vintage (1992) Grangehurst Pinotage to fill our stainless-steel tank – so, Jeremy decided to fill the tank with Cabernet Sauvignon (8%). So started the Grangehurst “recipe” of blending between 8 and 14% Cabernet Sauvignon with our Pinotage. The Cabernet provides an interesting dimension of fruit, tannin and additional acidity – which contribute to the complexity and balance of Grangehurst Pinotage.
