AA Badenhorst Family Red Blend
Product SKU # 542-0085
The grapes - Shiraz 66%, Mourvedre 16%, Grenache 14%, Hermitake 4% are sourced from various vineyards on the farm in Kalmoesfontein in the Swartland area and the greater Paardeberg Mountain. The grapes are then "foot stomped" to extract juice to assist the onset of natural fermentation. The 2012 is the 7th vintage of the Family Red. The wine has the potential to age very gracefully for the next decade or so. The tannins are prominent and well integrated and refreshing. The aromas are brooding 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 currant flavors.
