<p style=”text-align: left;”>The 2012 AA Badenhorst is our 7th release of this appellation wine. The vineyards
are getting better as our understanding of them grows and our relationships with the
few growers. This vintage will be quite reserved in its youth but I expect it mature
very well and grow into its potential. The tannins are prominent and well integrated
and refreshing as a number of the parcels were picked quite early. 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 savoury and currant flavours.
Total production 14400 bottles.</p>
