Badenhorst Family Red, Swartland, 2017

Lovely old-fashioned methods: early picked grapes for freshness, whole bunches foot-trodden for low extraction; and then left, post-fermentation, to macerate on the skins for months. The blend is always based on Syrah, 59% in 2017, plus 17%... Read More

Badenhorst Family Wines

Swartland, South Africa

We met Adi Badenhorst when he was making great wines at Rustenberg, and we have been shipping bottles from the family-owned vineyards at Kalmoesfontein farm on the Paardeberg for so many years that we still remember the days of bats nesting in the bedrooms and the resident Cape Cobra that lived behind one of the fermentation tanks!

Badenhorst Family Red, Swartland, 2017

Lovely old-fashioned methods: early picked grapes for freshness, whole bunches foot-trodden for low extraction; and then left, post-fermentation, to macerate on the skins for months. The blend is always based on Syrah, 59% in 2017, plus 17% Cinsault, and Grenache and 7% Tinta Barocca, given a very long post-fermentation maceration. Very youthful aromas and attack: vital red fruit with stimulating freshness and vigour – lifted by the strawberry Cinsault note. Opens out boldly, all classy aromatics and rather Northern Rhône in style. Very smooth tannins. Now-2024

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.
