Description

This is a red blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Cinsault and Grenache Noir grown by four different farmers in Swartland and the surrounding areas. A full-bodied, easy drinking wine, this is made to share. The 2020 vintage has notes of ripe red fruits, with pepper and spice:  the blend of grapes bring flavour and body, as well as balancing out the tannins. A fantastic wine at an equally fantastic price made to open and enjoy!

From three generations of winemaking stock, cousins Adi and Hein Badenhorst brought this humble vineyard in the Paardeberg complete with gnarled vines and a run-down winery. Winemaker Adi is now one of the leading players in ‘The Swartland Revolution’, a group of pioneering young winemakers making wines from the amazing raw materials that are part of the Swartland’s grape-growing legacy – a legacy that dates back centuries. Described as back to basics winemaking using traditional winemaking equipment to produce natural wines of the best possible quality; Adi makes wines to drink. The Curator is their entry level range, and the family have a Secateurs range which has become a benchmark for quality and price, and forms the cornerstone of his range. Their more serious wines, The Family Red & White, are field blends that reveal all of the subtlety and nuance that the Swartland has to offer, and show in beautiful detail just how amazing Swartland’s old vines can be. Recently, Adi has started experimenting more with small parcels of vines to produce special cuvées of varietal wine. These cuvées are made in very small quantities, showing off the subtler charms of Cinsault, Palomino, Steen (Chenin Blanc) and Grenache. 14% ABV.
