AA Badenhorst's Family Red is a gorgeous red blend, led by noble variety Shiraz. Its nose is brooding but complex with aromas of black cherries, perfume, pepper and liquorice. On the palate, the entry is rich with flavours of dark berry fruit and lavender, while the finish is dry and reminiscent of currant and savoury notes.
Tannins are forthcoming but well incorporated and ripe. This wine is quite shy while young and will continue to develop and become more expressive over the next 8 years from vintage and beyond.
