Adi Badenhorst was winemaker at Rustenberg until 2007 when he set with his cousin to Paardeberg. Here he is putting Swartland firmly on the map as a great South African wine region and is making a name for himself as one of SA’s forefront wine growers. I’ve worked with Adi’s wines for many years and finally pursauded him to bottle this briliant red in halves. It’s a belter.
