‘Attractive aromas of ripe stone fruit, lemon peel and sliced apple with hints of summer herbs and flowers. Round and textured with medium to full body and tangy acidity. Tense and structured with a chalky finish. A blend of 51% sauvignon blanc, 25% semillon and 24% chardonnay. Drink or hold.’ – James Suckling, Top 100 Wines of South Africa 2022, 93/100

'This is an innovative white blend that captures the most beautiful possible expression of the sandstone-derived soils in the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley. Free by design of excessively dramatic varietal fruit, the focus of the wine is on bright, hard minerality, salinity and vibrant natural acidity, coated by a full and gentle viscosity derived from a unique endemic yeast and the method of vinification, not from high alcohol. Nearly three decades of family experience have gone into this blend.' – Winemaker

Producer information Established in 1996 by Anthony Hamilton Russell, Ashbourne was founded around their single vineyard pinotage, with the aim of doing something extraordinary with this variety. 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.
