Tasting Notes

Light in alcohol, full in flavour.  Beautiful, jewel bright colour, but don’t let it fool you into thinking this is a Cinsault for quaffing now. More serious than previous vintages, with a fine-bone china tannin structure and serious ageing capacity. Fragrant, red currants and cinnamon bark, with hints of umami, fresh peonies and violets and a fine bitter, spicey/earthy note on the finish. 

More Info

We firmly believe that Adi Badenhorst is the most exciting winemaker in South Africa. He is also the most frustrating. His laid back, self-deprecating, playful manner keeps you guessing and makes you wonder whether he has any idea what he is actually doing, whether he just chucks some grapes into a vat and hopes for the best, but we know full well that there is a huge amount of expertise that goes on behind closed doors, when no one is around to witness his skill and diligence ...and spoil his reputation!

FROM THE PRESS

“Ramnasgras makes an interesting contrast with Ringmuur, showing more tannin, extraction and density than its paler, more ethereal sibling. Stony and granitic, with plum and red berry flavours, savoury intensity and a meaty undertone. Drink 2023-30, 94 points. ”
