Handcrafted. Traditional. Unhurried.
These three words epitomise Jeremy Walker’s winemaking, with one notable omission – Delicious. By ‘Unhurried’, Jeremy is alluding to the fact that he doesn’t release a wine until he believes it is ready to be enjoyed, which is evident in the current vintages being 2008 and 2009!

Jeremy Walker founded Grangehurst in 1992, when he converted his fathers’ squash court into a makeshift wine production cellar. He used the ‘squash court cellar’ to make his first 6 vintages, only moving out after the 1998 vintage. Jeremy was invited to join the prestigious Cape Winemakers Guild in 1996 and was one of the longest standing members when, in order to let a young winemaker take his place in the sun, he elected to step down in 2021.

The grapes for the Grangehurst Cabernet Sauvignon were hand harvested, then destemmed, before manual sorting. Fermentation and punchdowns took place in open fermenters, with 50% whole berries, before being pressed using a wooden basket press. The wine is matured for 34 months in French oak barrels before bottling and further bottle maturation before release.

The wine is full-bodied with intense cassis, red berry and fynbos notes. Cedar and spice from the oak maturation. Beautifully rounded, well integrated, tannins as a result of the extended ageing before release. A remarkable offering in a world that often sells wine too young.
