AA Badenhorst, The Curator Rosé, Swartland, South Africa 2021
(at Edinburgh, 26 Mar 2022)
Drinking Window: 2022 - 2023
Adi Badenhorst keeps the winemaking simple for his rosé Cinsault, which comes mostly from bush vines growing on granite and slate soils. The result is that the concentrated red fruit and dried earth aromas shine through, along with rich red cherry and raspberry jam on the palate to balance the fresh acidity. An enjoyable chewy texture too.
