'Delicate purity of forward aromas on single-vineyard 2020 lead to palate whose density & even power belies 13% alcohol & light elegance - alcohol a touch lower than 2019 (5 stars, 95 pts). Chalky tannic grip, fresh acidity give elegant refinement. Foudre ferment, then old 500L barrels.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (94/100)

'Made with what Adi Badenhorst assures me is the oldest Grenache vines in the Cape, planted in 1952, this is a reserved, focused, dusty red with very little oak influence, understated grip and concentration, brooding minerality and plum and red cherry fruit. Drink 2023-28.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2021, 94/100

'A somewhat shy nose with subtle notes of strawberry, cranberry, fynbos and spice. The palate is light-bodied and fresh with powdery tannins. It’s an understated wine that it is currently quite difficult to assess – there’s something compelling about the relationship between fruit, acidity and tannins that suggests this wine will flourish with time.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 92/100

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'.
