95 Tim Atkin (2019) "Jasper Wickens used to make the wines at AA Badenhorst until he got married and moved to the farm next door. Adi may disagree, but wine lovers should be glad that he did because he's making some amazing things, this one among them. Sourced from a high, shaded block, it's leesy, stony and very, very mineral with chiselled acidity. 2020-28."
The 2019 vintage resulted in high quality, focused Chenin Blanc. An invite of white and yellow stone fruit and herbal notes to a leaner palate, softly textured with peach, citrus, quince and a
slightly savoury touch.
A zesty acid zip leaves flavours to evolve and broaden with a longer finish. It is a complex and well-balanced wine, to be enjoyed fresh with food, although it can benefit with ageing to become quite complex and special.
The wine has pale gold to red copper tones. The nose invites with aromas of wild blossoms, stone fruits and a wet stone-like flintiness. Flavours of peach, nectarine, hottentots fig, persimmon and a touch of ginger fill the textured palate and linger with soft acidity. Finishing slightly savoury with a light tannin structure. Unique and special.

It is believed that Syrah found its way to South Africa in the late 1890's, but it only really became popular only a hundred years later....Planted on deep decomposed granite, this Syrah shows its elegant side. Naturally whole bunch fermented and threated with respect to the veraity. Floral lean and aromatic, with hints of spice and the aromas of surrounding fynbos, this wine is true to its place and caracther ....
Deep, dark in colour with a red/purple rim. Rich aromas of juicy, fresh berry fruits and floral notes of violets and lavender fields. Complex flavours of blueberry and purple and black forest fruits with a dense palate and a bright, succulent fresh finish. It has the raw, tight tannic structure of a more natural approach. A wine that reveals the naked identity of Touriga Nacional with uncompromising character.
