Badenhorst, Raaigras Grenache, 2019

A fabulous (and all too rare) new world Grenache. Soft and pale (Grenache is not a deeply coloured grape), it's also immediately juicy and supple, but that forward, strawberryish charm conceals considerable structure. It's astonishingly... Read More

Badenhorst Family Wines

Swartland, South Africa

We met Adi Badenhorst when he was making great wines at Rustenberg, and we have been shipping bottles from the family-owned vineyards at Kalmoesfontein farm on the Paardeberg for so many years that we still remember the days of bats nesting in the bedrooms and the resident Cape Cobra that lived behind one of the fermentation tanks!

The farm is now a...

Grenache / Garnacha

Grenache / Garnacha 

Grenache grows well in hot, dry regions, though it can develop very high (15 degrees+) alcohol.

As such it is grown principally in Southern France and Spain (as Garnacha). It is usually blended with other varieties in the Southern Rhône and Languedoc (Syrah, Mourvedre, Carignan, Cinsaut and others).

Badenhorst, Raaigras Grenache, 2019

A fabulous (and all too rare) new world Grenache. Soft and pale (Grenache is not a deeply coloured grape), it's also immediately juicy and supple, but that forward, strawberryish charm conceals considerable structure. It's astonishingly transparent; with a perfect dry finish showing evanescant red fruit hints. Adi says it will keep for ten years, but who has the patience?  It's remarkable already. Now-2027

This vineyard (less than a hectare, 12 long rows) was planted in 1952: Adi B says this it's the oldest Grenache vineyard in the Cape. 90% was destemmed, 10% left as whole bunches; and given 12 months in large, effectively neutral, oak vats. Just 1599 bottles in this vintage.
