AA Badenhorst, Secateurs Chenin Blanc 750ml 2020South Africa, Swartland
Tasting notes on the 2019 vintage:
'Fresh apple and greengage with lovely depth of fruit for a wine at this price. I find it a little sweet/sour as if there were some residual sugar? Apparently it is just 2.8 g/l. It’s certainly fresh but that sweetness (I am very susceptible to residual sugar so you might want to ignore this bit) makes me want to go and brush my teeth.' – Julia Harding MW, JancisRobinson.com, 16-/20
About AA Badenhorst:
AA Badenhorst Family Wines are grown, made and matured on Kalmoesfontein farm in the Swartland appellation of South Africa. The farm is owned by cousins, Hein and Adi Badenhorst, and over the last decade, 41 hectares of old vines, the oldest planted back in 1952, have been farmed back to glory. They practice biological farming and make natural wines in the traditional manner. ‘The top wines translate Swartland through Adi’s fuzzy logic and irresistible charm,’ writes Neal Martin after a visit. He also calls his visit one of his ‘top 10 wine visits of all time’.
