Professional Wine Reviews for Aa Badenhorst Grenache Raaigras 2017

Rated 91 by Vinous Media
The 2017 Raaigras (“rye grass”) Grenache comes from the oldest Grenache in South Africa, planted in 1952. It has a well-defined, very perfumed, almost minty bouquet of thyme and sage. The palate is medium-bodied with a slightly medicinal opening, that leitmotif of peppermint surfacing through the red fruit, and well defined with gentle grip and slightly chalky tannin on the sappy finish. Very fine.

Winery Aa Badenhorst

Region: Coastal Region

Coastal South Africa has long been recognized as a vitally important global wine region, and was probably the first 'New World' country to produce wines of an exceptionally high quality. Indeed, in the late 18th century, wines from in and around Cape Town were regarded as amongst the best wines on earth, and were adored for their exoticism and big, fruity flavors Today, the South African wine industry is booming, and wineries are appearing each year along the sun drenched and windy oceanic coastline. Many grape varietals are now grown in the region, however, Chenin Blanc remains the country's flagship varietal, with over eighteen percent of vineyards in the country used for this particular grape, closely followed by Cabernet Sauvignon and Colombard.

Country: South Africa

As geographically diverse country, with everything from lush green valleys to areas of arid desert, mountainsides and river estuaries, South Africa unsurprisingly produces a huge range of excellent wines. Regions such as the Breede River Valley consistently impress with their Semillon wines and the lush, fruity Ruby Cabernets grown and processed here, and the cooler region of Overberg is attracting much attention as a result of their silky Pinot Noir bottles. However, all over the oceanic tip of this fascinating country, traditional methods dating back over three hundred years are combining with modern technologies to produce some of the finest examples of New World wines to be found anywhere on the globe.
