Tasting Notes

From the oldest Grenache vineyard in South Africa which has only 12 rows of vines! It has floating aromas of wild strawberries, lavender and rose petals. A hint of supple leather and dried cranberries and bracken – on the nose its all about the perfume than the weight. The palate is very polished and weightless with cool mineral undertones, cloves and wild herbs. The finish is long and silky. A tip top old vine Grenache!

More Info

As far as we know, no one has yet produced a vaccine to protect against Adi Badenhorst. So contagious is his lust for life that you can't help but be infected by it, whether it means you find yourself bundled into the back of his Silverado and taken on a bone-rattling tour of his vineyards or dragged into his cellar to lend a hand with the blending. Not so much a winemaker as a force of nature.

FROM THE PRESS

“This was planted in the 1950s, fresh strawberry nuances, cranberries with a savoury background, would like to see this age, gives a refreshing juicy aftertaste, lovely.”
Roger Jones, The Buyer
“Adi Badenhorst reckons this 1951 Grenache block is the oldest in South Africa, and who am I to argue with him? Fans of the Gredos mountain reds from Spain will love this dense, sappy, red-fruited style, with a nip of tannin, very little wood influence and a racy finish.”
