WINES. SURPRISINGLY AFFORDABLE.
Explore our simply delightful creations from the
Valley of Wine and Roses.
If you enjoy an exceptional wine that is also exceptionally affordable
(who doesn’t?) then the Ashton Winery range will reward your taste exploration, right here on our
website, or even better: in real life at our wine tasting room.
Two factors determine the quality of our wines: the attentive care of our wine makers
and viticulturist, and the fact that we have access to the yields of our 46 member farms, which means
a variety of terroirs and a range of varietals are represented under the Ashton Winery label.
REDS AND WHITES THAT YOU SIMPLY MUST EXPERIENCE.
Deep red, smooth and velvety, this wine delivers a gorgeous bouquet of plums and dark berries with a full-bodied palate of ripe blackcurrants and subtle undertones of dark chocolate.
A robust wine with a bold finish, this red will complement a perfectly seared steak. It should age well for three to five years.
Delightful bouquet of well-integrated fruit and delicate white pepper with a full bodied palate of plums and mulberries. Deep red in colour with good cellaring potential. This is a vibrant wine with a satisfying finish.
Its fruity pepper spice character will go well with an Italian inspired chicken or lamb dish, prepared with hints of herb and fully ripened tomatoes.
A smooth, oak matured wine with roasted coffee and ripe plum flavours. Soft tannins ensure a smooth fruit finish with a taste of lingering mocha. This is a versatile Pinotage, which pairs beautifully with a range of meats – from smoked duck to Cajun style salmon.
Try the Coffee Pinotage; it’s the perfect accompaniment to a rich chocolate dessert.
Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot
Well balanced flavours of dark, ripe berries and eucalyptus, contributed by both cultivars in this blend. The fresh oak supports the flavours very well; it fuses the bouquet with the medium bodied smooth palate. This wine should age well for three to five years.
Combined with rack of lamb, burger and chips or spare ribs, it is a winner.
Intense notes of ripe berries and chocolate are completed by well-balanced silky tannins that make this wine velvety smooth with a full rounded finish. Enjoy it with braised short rib or braaied steak.
The hints of chocolate make this merlot the ideal wine to pair with a creamy crème brûlée.
The grapes are picked early, which gives this wine its lively, crisp acidity. The intense guava, green pepper and litchi bouquet should please every lover of Sauvignon Blanc. This popular style of wine goes well with seafood, particularly a seafood salad.
The crisp, dry fruitiness will pair perfectly with Asian salmon.
A super crisp wine with flinty green characters on the nose and hints of fig and tropical fruits. A sweet middle palate and dry finish ensure a well-balanced taste that complements the bouquet.
This wine’s pleasant aroma and flintiness will be ideal with a tapas platter or game carpaccio.
A full-bodied wine with orange peel and soft tropical fruit characters. The buttery palate and creamy tones complement the bouquet, enriching the typical Chardonnay characters.
A great complement to sushi, fish, pasta or chicken dishes.
SPECIAL RELEASES – RARE PLEASURES.
Chardonnay Limited Release
To create this rare release, our winemakers carefully selected the grapes from the most fertile slopes of the Robertson Wine Valley. Only a limited volume of this remarkable wine is produced. It is barrel fermented and matured in new French oak for four months.
It is a classic Chardonnay, and its citrus, dried-fruit notes and lingering creamy finish make it the perfect companion for any fish or Thai curry dish.
Ashton, previously known as Roodewal, is where this superb blend originated. With its subtle aftertaste of dark fruit, black forest cake, cassis and cigar box, this sensuous red pays homage to our beloved district, its people and its heritage. The ideal accompaniment would be a perfectly grilled steak or a decadent chocolate dessert.
This sought-after wine usually sells out quickly, so be sure to place your wine order.
Copper-red hues combine with fresh Muscat toffee characters and a zingy acidic tang in this rich yet refreshing wine. It leaves you with lingering orange peel and a touch of cayenne spice.
This wine will offset the richness of a dark chocolate mousse, or a blue cheese or other well-matured cheese.
Pinotage Winemaker’s Reserve
The grapes for this exquisite wine are hand-picked and gently basket-pressed to achieve a soft, intense mouthfeel. This pinotage has great depth of colour and a complex nose of ripe, dark fruit with a hint of vanilla.
Enjoy it with good company and a rich oxtail or other meat and veg dishes. It is also a fine accompaniment to canapes and cheese.
Noble Late Harvest
This beautifully crafted noble late harvest presents rich aromas of honey with intense flavours of sun ripened raisins. The palate is full bodied with a perfect balance of sweet fruit and fresh acidity.
Enjoy it as an aperitif or with a rich liver parfait or cheese platter.
