BOTTLE OF AA BADENHORST FAMILY RED 2018
A quintessential new-wave Swartland blend of shiraz (56%), grenache, cinsault and tinta barocca. The 2018 AA Badenhorst is the 13th release of this appellation wine. This vintage is reserved in its youth and will mature very well and evolve into its potential. The tannins are prominent, well-integrated and refreshing. The aromas are brooding but 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 black currant.
