Hermitake or Cinsault was once the workhorse of the South African wine industry but over the last couple of decades its star has waned in favour of the fancy. Shiraz and the likes. However, an old vineyard like this deserves to be bottled on its own as a single vineyard wine. This is the third bottling of this wine on its own. Light hue and vibrant colour. The aromatics are lifted and pure-typical of the carbonic-style. The tannin grip is velvety and there is a wonderful fruit concentration on the palate.

 

AA Badenhorst Family Wines are grown, made and matured on Kalmoesfontein farm in the Swartland appellation of South Africa. The property is owned by the baie dynamic and good looking cousins Hein and Adi Badenhorst. They are originally from Constantia. Their grandfather was the farm manager of Groot Constantia for 46 years. Their fathers were born there and farmed together in Constantia, during the days when people still ate fresh vegetables and Hanepoot grapes, drank Cinsault and there were a lot less traffic lights and hippies still had a presence. Together these two have restored a neglected cellar on the farm that was last used in the 1930′s to make natural wines in the traditional manner.
