Estate Notes

Founded in 1998 by Anthony Hamilton, Ashbourne Estate is located in the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley, on a beautiful property on the eastern border of Hamilton Russell Vineyards. Here, this small Pinotage specialist has developed a reputation for innovative, highly individual, classically styled and age-worthy blends.

“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

Reviews

Classic, refined styling and unique complex character. Intense, rich and savoury with a beautiful underlying minerality.
