With more than 350 years of winemaking history, South Africa is often described as a bridge between the Old and New Worlds. Most wines are made using New World winemaking techniques but often have more in common stylistically with their European counterparts. The country's signature variety is Pinotage, which was crossed between Pinot Noir and Cinsault at Stellenbosch University in 1925. In addition, large amounts of Shiraz, Cabernet and Merlot are grown. Chenin Blanc, or Steen as it is known locally, is the most popular white variety.Much of the country's wine production is around the Western Cape where mountains, valleys and plateaus allow winemakers to produce a diverse range of styles. Sparkling wine is even produced and named Cap Classique.
GRACELAND Vineyards is a boutique winery located in the famous South African wine region of Stellenbosch about 50KM east of Cape Town. GRACELAND wines are modern, rich, juicy wines showing the true potential of this wonderful growing zone
Named after Hope Marguerite Beaumont, a woman with character, elegance and a love for wine. A careful selection of the most characterful CHENIN BLANC fruit from their oldest vineyards at Beaumont (planted in ‘74 & ‘78), left to ferment naturally with minimum intervention, matured in mostly old 400L French oak, of which 13% was new wood. The 2019 is a beautifully mouth filling vintage.
Blackberries wrapped in dark chocolate are abundant in this most elegant and stylish Cabernet, with superior fruit expression and structured tannins. A well defined, European style Cabernet, from the best area in Stellenbosch, South Africa. Intense color and long finish bookend this exceptional wine.
