Current Range

The Grangehurst range currently comprises the following wines:

Grangehurst a Bordeaux-style blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot.
Nikela a Cape Blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinotage and Merlot (from 2002 also Shiraz).
Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot a blend of two of the important Bordeaux varieties (from 2002 also some Petit Verdot).
Cabernet Sauvignon and Reserve single varietal wines from "the king of red grapes" (including Woolworths "Limited Release").
Pinotage South Africa's "own" variety, which we always blend with a splash of Cabernet Sauvignon.
Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon new to the Grangehurst range a blend of two very different grape varieties that create an interesting harmony.
Cape Rosé Blend a dry rosé blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinotage, Merlot, Chenin Blanc and Shiraz.

The Nikela has been part of the Grangehurst range since 1997, which was Eddie and Betty Walker's last vintage. Having lost both his parents within a few months of each other, Jeremy decided to produce a special wine as a tribute to them for all the help moral and financial that they had provided over the years. The word "Nikela" is an adaptation of an African word and means "to offer a gift of dedication, respect or tribute to one's ancestors". The vintages since 1997 to 2001 have all been blends of Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinotage, and Merlot. The 2002 Nikela contains some Shiraz in the blend and future vintages will probably include Shiraz and Mourvèdre (which will replace the Merlot).

The Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot blend and the Pinotage have been produced each year since 1992 with the exception of 1999, when we did not bottle any Pinotage.

Cabernet Sauvignon was bottled as a single varietal wine in 1992 and 1993. In 2000 we bottled a single varietal wine under the IOD (Institute of Directors) label. Although this wine was a great success actually because of the success we decided to reintroduce Cabernet Sauvignon under the Grangehurst label in 2001 but unfortunately did not have enough Cabernet Sauvignon to bottle as a single varietal under the Grangehurst label in 2002 or 2003. However, we have bottled a "Limited Release" 2003 and 2005 vintage Cabernet Sauvignon under the Woolworths Grangehurst label.

We also produce some special reserve wines from time to time such as the Grangehurst 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve and Grangehurst 2003 Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon, and in November 2009 released the first vintage of a wine to be know simply as "Grangehurst" the first vintage being a 2005 blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot & Petit Verdot.

Apart from these wines, limited quantities of special vineyard and/or barrel selections are bottled exclusively for sale at the annual Cape Winemakers Guild auction. The wines sold under the CWG label are as follows:
