About this Item

2015 Red Blend
6 (1 x 6) 750ml

Considered among the new age icons responsible for the Swartland’s success, and a driving force behind the Swartland Revolution, Adi Badenhorst was one of the first to really believe in the area and purchased Kalmoesfontein back in 2008 with his cousin Hein. Over the last decade, 41 hectares of old vines, the oldest planted back in 1952, have been farmed back to glory. They practice biological farming and make natural wines in the traditional manner.

Critics Ratings

Broadly styled 2015 from 100% whole-bunch fruit delivers clean black-berried fruit interspersed with strawberry whiffs then leather, spice, perfume & pepper. Lovely pliable tannins, gorgeous silky texture.  - Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2018, 4.5* (94 points)

‘The family red doesn’t contain as many varieties as the white, but it’s still an intriguing quartet of mostly Shiraz with Grenache, Cinsaut and Tinta Barocca, combining grip with texture, perfume with savoury, sappy, summer pudding fruit flavours. 2017-22.’ - Tim Atkin, SA Special Report 2017, 93/100
