Ringmuur Cinsault has previously been described by Master of Wine, Tim Atkin, as "the best example of the grape I've tasted from the Cape". He awarded this vintage a massive 95 points. The name means 'ring wall', in reference to the walled vineyard, or 'clos' as it would be called in France.
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!
