Badenhorst Family Red, Swartland, 2017

Lovely old-fashioned methods: early picked grapes for freshness, whole bunches foot-trodden for low extraction; and then left, post-fermentation, to macerate on the skins for months. The blend is always based on Syrah, 59% in 2017, plus 17%... Read More

Badenhorst Family Red, Swartland, 2017

Lovely old-fashioned methods: early picked grapes for freshness, whole bunches foot-trodden for low extraction; and then left, post-fermentation, to macerate on the skins for months. The blend is always based on Syrah, 59% in 2017, plus 17% Cinsault, and Grenache and 7% Tinta Barocca, given a very long post-fermentation maceration. Very youthful aromas and attack: vital red fruit with stimulating freshness and vigour – lifted by the strawberry Cinsault note. Opens out boldly, all classy aromatics and rather Northern Rhône in style. Very smooth tannins. Now-2024

Absolutely loving the sun case, what a great way to be introduced to new wines.

Just wanted to say thank you so much for sending my order of 2 x Domaine Begude Rosé to my son and daughter-in-law - I couldn't believe that they received it within a day of my placing the order with you. That is IMPRESSIVE, especially given the current trying times.
