Aa Badenhorst Secateur Chenin Blanc 2010

Member Review by Erica Landin:

Adi Badenhorst, the winemaker, is a bit nuts and he plays it up. A founding member of the Swartland Independent Revolution, he is easily recognized at any formal South African wine event for his wild beard and bright eyes. He says the wine makes itself because he is lazy - I'd like to call Bull**** on that one. He knows exactly what he is doing and his wines are clean, bright and with personality. The old vines he must have gotten a hold of for this Chenin Blanc give depth, richness and complexity to the wine. Highly drinkable at a good price. Hands-off winemaking.

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
