'This amazing dry Palomino comes from the same coastal, windswept vineyard as Eben Sadie's Skerpioen, located on sand and limestone soils. Bready, saline and herbal, with a wild, unruly note and a tangy, chiselled finish. Drink 2021-26.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2020, 95/100

'Hazelnut & salty note on 2019. Touch riper (14% alcohol) & less uncompromisingly dry than previous. Still a touch of unfruity austerity, but plenty of flavour, making for delicious sipping. Wholebunch pressed, older vat ferment.' – Platter's Guide, 4*

'Palomino as we all well know was used mainly to produce sherry and sherry-styled wines in South Africa. Very few of these vineyards remain and this Brakkuil vineyard is one of them. A rare bottling of this varietal shows the vineyard and varietal very well. The wine is pure, delicate, vinous, and savoury/salty to the taste.' – 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'.
