Ashbourne Sauvignon Blanc / Chardonnay 2018

“Sourced from two parts of the Swartland, rather than the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley, this is the second vintage of this 80/20 blend. It’s a tangy, tart, pomegranate and summer berry style with fine tannins and no wood at all.” 93 points

Ashbourne Pinotage 2016

“One vineyard, one variety,” is how Anthony Hamilton Russell describes this site in the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley. Now released as a much younger wine since 2015, it’s a stunning expression of the grape, showing spicy red berry fruit, fine tannins and remarkable line and length.” 95 points
