Ashbourne Pinotage 2018
Located in the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley, on a beautiful property on the eastern border of Hamilton Russell Vineyards, this small Pinotage and Sauvignon blanc based blend specialist has developed a reputation for innovative, highly individual, classically styled and age-worthy blends.
Founded in 1996 by Anthony Hamilton Russell with the first Pinotage planting in the area and located on a beautiful 64 hectare property in the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley on the eastern border of Hamilton Russell Vineyards, very close to the cold South Atlantic Ocean.
“Ashbourne began as a quest to make something extraordinary out of Pinotage in ancient, unusually clay-rich, shale-derived soils. It remains our goal to grow and make unusual, age-worthy, classically styled wines with a true South African personality, that belong in the company of the world's benchmarks.” - Anthony Hamilton Russell
