The Pinotage grape, developed at Stellenbosch University in South Africa, is a cross between Pinot Noir and Cinsault varieties. Grayhaven's Pinotage is a specialty of general manager and assistant winemaker Deon Abrams, who hails from the sunny coast of Cape Town, SA. This spicy, peppery, medium-bodied red with cherry notes pairs well with steak, lamb, marinara based pasta and other Italian dishes.
This Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot blend is created in the Beaujolais Nouveaux style, making it light bodied and low in tannins. Rendezvous is gently oaked and offers a distinct currant aroma. The berry tones and light body make it the perfect wine to serve with quail, duck and veal.
In the tradition of the Alsace region, Grayhaven's Riesling is a spicy, off-dry wine with balanced acidity. Pairs well with turkey, pork, poultry, dim sum, and ratatouille.
  Sauvignon Blanc
Citrus and fruit aromas and a clean, crisp finish are the hallmarks of Grayhaven's Sauvignon Blanc. Best served with seafood and is well paired with the delicate flavors of scallops, lobster and crab.
  Seyval Blanc
Grayhaven's Seyval Blanc is a spicy, medium bodied white bursting with personality. Its depth of character and lively nature make it the perfect accompaniment to rich foods such as pate or risotto, and the bold flavors of tapas or grilled sausages.
  The Eventide
Expect the unexpected with Grayhaven's The Eventide blush. Each release offers a bold new approach to blush wine's relationship with cuisine. From our dry, 100% Cabernet Franc blush to the off-dry and semi-sweet blush blends using Vidal Blanc, Golden Muscat, Concord and Marechal Foch, The Eventide is both whimsical and complex. Best served with grilled meats, grilled shrimp or savory-sweet dishes using pineapple or apricot.
Grayhaven's Touriga is made with 100% Touriga grapes - a variety developed by the Portuguese and often used in the production of Port wines. This rich, full bodied red is round and velvety with cherry notes and provides hint of vanilla in the bouquet and finish. Perfect served with steaks and bold enough to compliment rich dishes such as steak au poivre or osso buco.
Voyager is Grayhaven's signature white blend, known for its fruity aroma and full body. Grapes such as Vidal Blanc, Cayuga White, Golden Muscat and Seyval Blanc are used to craft a versatile wine that pairs well with hors d'oeuvres, poultry, fish and light pasta.
