The Grangehurst Nikela is a uniquely South African wine in that it is a Cape Blend. The winemaker named it so as an homage to his parents because Nikela means “to offer a gift of dedication, respect or a tribute to one’s ancestors”. It is a deep mulberry colour, with a thin garnet edge and a bouquet of concentrated red and black macerated fruits, with touches of mocha, mint and graphite. The palate has developed nicely over time with mouth-filling buoyant fruit, rounded, ripe tannins, and excellent structure. This wine will provide enjoyment for 6 to 12 years after vintage.
