3 day lead-time required to confirm availability Why?

Adi Badenhorsts skill as a winemaker is well acknowledged note his appointments to Rustenberg and his membership in South Africas premier winemaking association, The Cape Winemakers Guild ‒ so when he decided to produce approachable wines at $10, he chose partners with a similar philosophy towards quality, Michael and Bartholomew Broadbent. Founded in 2012, Adi sources grapes solely from the Swartland region, the same area from which he produces his estate wines for A.A. Badenhorst. The Chenin Blanc, Chardonnay, Semillon, Shiraz, Mourvedre, Cinsault and Viognier are planted on one of three types of granite soil (specifically Paardeberg, Lammershoek and Lemoenfontein) and dry-farmed. The hand-picked fruit is chilled overnight and fermented naturally.

Tasting notes
This friendly, medium-bodied red offers pretty notes of red cherry, licorice, damson plum, chocolate, briar and bay leaf that is framed by a supple yet fresh, finish.

Technical notes
(Shiraz 82%/Mourvedre 16%/Cinsault 1%/Viognier 1%) The grapes were sourced from eight different sites, destemmed and aged mostly in concrete tanks and old casks. The individual components were brought together relatively early to allow adequate time to integrate and after 14-16 months, the wine was bottled.
