Badenhorst ‘Secateurs’ Chenin Blanc 20187 - Swartland, South Africa


The Story

AA Badenhorst Family Wines are grown, made and matured on Kalmoesfontein farm in the Swartland appellation of South Africa. The 28ha of old bush vines grow in the Siebritskloof part of the Paardeberg mountain. The property is owned by the dynamic cousins Hein and Adi Badenhorst. 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. On Kalmoesfontein it is back to basics, using traditional winemaking equipment and old cement kuipe, producing wine with immense character and sense of terroir. 

M+Q Notes

Bright yellow-gold this delicious wine has scents of crisp red apple, pear, fresh honey, anise and dusty wild herbs; one gets a sense of the unique granite based soils where this wine is grown from. A light touch of toast with terrific fruit concentration on the finish.

Food Suggestion

Mud Crab with a touch of chilli
