AA Badenhorst Ringmuur Cinsault 2021


The Ringmuur vineyard was planted in 1963 on decomposed granite soils surrounded on two sides by an old farm ring wall. It is tiny and completely different from the other Badenhorst Cinsault vineyards, usually yielding less than a tonne of special grapes.

Made using carbonic maceration, this wine is typical of its style.  With cherries and rose petals on the nose it is light and vibrant; pure and energetic on the palate. A real unicorn wine from the Swartland!

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

There are 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.
