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. Read less

A complex kitchen-sink blend of 29% Chenin Blanc 23% Roussanne 11% Viognier 11% Chardonnay 10% Grenache Blanc 5% Colombar 5% Grenache Gris 2% Simillon 2% Clairette and 1% Verdelho theres a lot to be discovered in this wine. Melon pear and sweet citrus lead the bouquet with nuances of orange blossom and honeysuckle while spicy flavors of baked apple glazed canteloupe and lightly-mulled pear flood the palate. Round and forward with a silky texture; give it time to open up now or hold another couple of years. Wine Enthusiast.

Bottled in January the 2009 Family White Blend is a blend of around ten white varieties that Adi tried his best to remember. We got as far as Chenin Blanc Grenache Gris Palomino Clairette and Semillon but we might have been there all day. The striking thing about the nose is the definition for the 2009 shows greater precision than the 2008 whilst the Palomino does indeed impart a sherry-like tincture. The palate is supremely well balanced and demonstrates greater tension and vibrancy than
