‘Always more than the sum of its impressive parts, Kalmoesfontein is Syrah-based with 60% Cinsault, Tinta Barocca and Touriga Nacional, all picked on the same day and co-fermented. Concentrated, but not over-extracted, with stony reduction, some oak spices, garrigue top notes and layers of plum, blackberry and fennel. 2024-32’ – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2022, 94/100

‘The 2020 AA Badenhorst Red Blend (which now prints the farm name, Kalmoesfontein, on the label) contains eight vineyards all picked together over three days. This is very attractive with blackberry, raspberry, a lovely herbal element and dried violets on the nose. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannins, very well balanced, clean and pure with a dash of white pepper on the persistent finish. Superb. 2023-2038’ – Neal Martin, Vinous, 93/100

‘Consisting primarily of Syrah, Cinsault and Grenache but also multiple other varieties, these co-fermented. The nose is quite heady with notes of red and black berries, lavender, fennel and fynbos while has plenty of ripe fruit and fine tannins – full of flavour with an nicely savoury finish.’ – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 93/100

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'.
