'Incorporates the 1962 Sk’windjiesvlei vineyard as utilized by Adi Badenhorst for the first time in addition to the usual 1968 vineyard that Bruyns has previously accessed. Expressive aromatics of red and black berries, fynbos, flowers and spice. Sweet and rich on entry but there’s also bright acidity and nicely grippy tannins, these making for a finish that is long and dry.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 92/100

'This has been one of our most exciting varietal discoveries. Tinta Barocca is a great grape to grow in the Swartland and has a big future here as a dry wine. This is a wine with great structure, and this is amplified with the two old Paardeberg dryland vineyards (the oldest planted in 1962) that we work with.' – André Bruyns, Winemaker
