Badenhorst Family White, Kalmoesfontein White Blend, Coastal Region, 2018

"Between 14 and 17 vineyards - Adi Badenhorst can't quite remember - go into this finely judged cuvée of Chenin Blanc with 53% Grenache Blanc, Verdelho, Roussanne, Palomino and Semillon. Expressing the classic focus and granitic precision of the Paardeberg, it's mealy, complex and saline, with lanolin, pear and citrus notes." 93/100 Drink 2020-26 Tim Atkin MW, South Africa Report 2020

Just wanted to say thank you so much for sending my order of 2 x Domaine Begude Rosé to my son and daughter-in-law - I couldn't believe that they received it within a day of my placing the order with you. That is IMPRESSIVE, especially given the current trying times.
