AA Badenhorst Kalmoesfontein Red Blend 2021


58% Shiraz, 14% Cinsault, 14% Tinta Barocca, 9% Mourvèdre, and 5% Grenache Noir.

Small parcels of selected fruit are sourced from seven vineyards on Kalmoesfontein farm and from their neighbours with good tasting grapes.

The 2021 AA Badenhorst is their 16th release of this appellation wine. The aromas are brooding but with complex notes of pepper, liquorice, perfume, and black cherries. The palate entry is quite dense with lavender and dark berry fruit. The finish is dry with well spread tannins ending with savoury and black currant flavours.

From three generations of winemaking stock, Adi was destined to be the best. Time in the Rhône Valley in France, New Zealand, and as winemaker at Rustenberg, polished his talent before he (along with his cousin) bought his humble vineyard in the Paardeberg complete with gnarled vines and a run-down winery.

There are very few young winemakers in South Africa that haven’t benefitted from his mentorship. This furry-faced whirlwind can be such a big personality – one of those ‘force of nature’ types – that people forget just how brilliant a winemaker he actually is. Adi makes wines to drink.
