Tasting Notes

From the Cape's oldest Grenache vines, all 12 rows of it! 1952 planting. Gorgeous fruit on the nose hiding behind a hint of reduction – cranberries cooked with orange zest, red currants and strawberries, with just the right hint of greenness – think fresh moss and a gentle ferrous note. Tart acid frame and fine, mouth-coating tannins. The finish is cranberry spiked, with a hint of nutmeg and v long. No hurry to drink this at all.

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!
