AA Badenhorst Ramnasgras Cinsault 2017Regular price £38.00
Adi Badenhorst made his first wine aged thirteen at Buitenverwachting. After stints at Angelus and with Alain Graillot, he became head winemaker at Rustenberg, and is now rightly considered among South Africa’s winemaking pioneers, alongside Eben Sadie and Chris Mullineux. Ramnasgras is sourced from a single vineyard planted in the 1950s and includes both whole bunch and destemmed fruit. Pleasingly wild, juicy red cherry and raspberry notes mix with herbs and spices. Pretty and poised with fine, grainy tannins.
