Young, floral flavors of Syrah provide a gentle introduction to the tougher, gamier aspects of the local Kotsifali and Mandilari. The spicy blend is plummy, with a rustic, chewy texture.

Wine maker notes
The grapes used for vinificating OKTO all come from carefully selected higher altitude vineyards of central Crete, with Northern exposure. Those vineyards are the modern successors of the millenia-long winemaking history of Crete.

Producer
AA Badenhorst Family Wines are grown, made and matured on Kalmoesfontein farm in the Swartland appellation of South Africa. The 28ha of old bushvines grow in the Siebritskloof part of the Paardeberg mountain. The property is owned by the dynamic and good looking cousins Hein and Adi Badenhorst. They are originally from Constantia. Their grandfather was the farm manager of Groot Constantia for 46 years. Their fathers were born there and farmed together in Constantia, during the days when people still ate fresh vegetables and Hanepoot grapes, drank Cinsault and there were a lot less traffic lights and hippies still had a presence. Together these two have restored a neglected cellar on the farm that was last used in the 1930’s to make natural wines in the traditional manner.
