  • About this winery

    Scruffy-faced and ponytailed, Adi Badenhorst is one of the wine world's great characters. Formerly the winemaker at the renowned Stellenbosch estate Rustenberg, he comes from a family with a distinguished wine pedigree: his grandfather was the general manager at Groot Constantia for 46 years. In 2008 together with his cousin Hein he purchased a 60 acre farm which was in the middle of nowhere and had been abandoned since the 1930's.

It is powerful and concentrated, yet elegant and refined, with notes of lush red cherry, raspberry and plum that are complemented by notes of game, pepper and fynbos. Fine yet gripping tannins and tight fruit flavors lend a solid structure to the rich mouthfeel, while notes of peppered berries and mentholated herbs linger long on the finish.

    The 2013 Family Red Blend consists of 68% Shiraz, 18% Grenache, 10% Cinsault and 4% Tinta Barocca. It has a composed and refined nose, keeping to itself at first but then opening and delivering red plum, wild strawberry, and animally scents mixed with rosemary and oregano. The palate is medium-bodied with a refreshing line of acidity. I much prefer this to the White Blend this year - beautifully controlled, fine tannins and a sense of symmetry and sophistication towards the finish. This comes highly recommended.
