An exceptionally exciting new addition to De Grendel's flagship range, marking not only our cellar’s 10th anniversary, but also made to honour Sir De Villiers Graaff’s grandfather and namesake, the 2nd Baronet, Sir De Villiers Graaff.
Pinotage, especially if it was from the Durbanville Ward, was a favourite cultivar of his grandfather. The wine is inspired by fond memories of the Almond Orchard through which the young Sir De Villiers Graaff would go horse riding with his grandfather.
De Grendel cellarmaster Charles Hopkins was only too happy to oblige in the creation of this exceptionally balanced and elegant example of the South African cultivar, which is a reflection of De Grendel’s unique terroir, predicting that it will be one "to write home about".
Although exceptionally accessible now, the wine will reward ageing for 5 to 8 years.
