Grangehurst Winery is a boutique cellar on the slopes of the Helderberg mountain in Stellenbosch established by CWG member Jeremy Walker in 1992. Jeremy specialises in Pinotage and Bordeaux varietals, making wines with a reputation for their long cellaring potential, and one of the few producers to release wines into the market after acquiring essential bottle age of 5 years or more. As it says on the label - "Handcrafted; Traditional; Unhurried; Classic Red Wines".

Nikela means “tribute or gift to one's ancestors” - this wine is a tribute to winemaker Jeremy Walker's late parents, Eddie and Betty, who contributed greatly to the establishment of Grangehurst. Selected from prime vineyard areas in Stellenbosch, the slopes of the Helderberg Mountain and the hills of Firgrove. This wine was clarified according to the natural settling and racking method, which does not involve the use of any unnatural fining agents, centrifuges or filters. This method of clarifying wine prevents it from being stripped of flavors. The various component wines – Pinotage, Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Merlot – were matured separately in 225 litre barrels (90% French & 10% American) for 28 months.

"This Pinotage has the benefit of age, allowing it to be remarkably balanced and drinkable now. Bright red berry notes are laced with accents of vanilla and cured meat. The mouth is ripe and satiny, with dusty tannins and a finish loaded with sweet smoke flavors." - 90/100, Wine Enthusiast

"Cape Blend, now with majority Pinotage, usual partners Cab, Shiraz, Merlot. 2003 Finely structured as ever, tight ripe tannins, savoury freshness, delicate extraction. Maintains reputation as one of the most polished of this genre. 2 Years oak." - Platter's SA Wine Guide 2010, 4.5*
