2018 Ramnasgras Cinsault, AA Badenhorst

Very floral, with notes of violets as well as pomegranate and grapefruit. Silky on the palate, this is such a beautiful red from Adi - serve it slightly chilled for one of the most thirst-quenching, impressive wines we know.

TASTING NOTES

Located just inside the gate at the start of Adi Badenhorst's farm on decomposed sand and granite soils, this firm, grippy Cinsault is fermented with 20% whole bunches and is structured, sappy and appealingly low in alcohol. A Cinsault for Grenache lovers.
