'The rechristened Family Red is a glimpse into the future when Adi Badenhorst aims to make just a single, catch-all red from the farm. This is a medley of Syrah with 60% Grenache, Cinsault and Tinta Barocca from eight sites, showing black pepper, fynbos, blackberry and raspberry fruit, granitic tannins and a fresh, racy finish. 2022-28.' – Tim Atkin MW, 2021 SA Report, 94/100

'From Shiraz, Cinsault, Tinta Barocca, Grenache and Touriga Nacional sourced from nine separate vineyards and co-fermented. A complex nose showing red and black berries, rooibos tea, lavender, fynbos, earth and spice. The palate, meanwhile, is balanced and detailed – lovely fruit purity, bright acidity and firm but fine tannins, the finish long and dry. Wonderfully well judged.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 95/100

'The 2019 AA Badenhorst is our 14th release of this appellation wine. The aromas are brooding but with complex notes of pepper, liquorice, perfume, and black cherries. The palate entry is quite dense with lavender and dark berry fruit. The finish is dry with well spread tannins ending with savoury and black currant flavours.' – Adi Badenhorst, Winemaker

Producer information 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'.
