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

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!

The farm is now a...

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

Always friendly and helpful-much better than supermarket wines for not much more! The doorstep dozen is brilliant!

I have used Stone, Vine & Sun for a number of years now and have found their advice in seeking wines to my taste most helpful. They have often found some small vineyards that need assistance and have provided excellent wines. I will always look to support my local services where possible, for if we do not they will cease to exist leaving faceless conglomerates. They are always a happy organisation to interact with and their local delivery service works very well.

Great service and fantastic products. We have never had a bad bottle with any of our orders, and I can guarantee your friends will not have the same producers/vintages available at Stone, Vine, & Sun.

As always SVS delivered my recent order next working day with no errors. My only problem with them as a wine merchant is that they regularly send me more mouth watering offers than my budget or my cellar can cope with. My kind of merchant. So many great finds, many from less fashionable (read expensive) regions, but always carefully selected, good value and good of their kind.

Many classic wines plus lots examples from independents practicing natural methods including a good selection from South Africa. The price spectrum includes many delicious wines under £10. An informative website makes ordering simple with rapid delivery. This year I confidently dipped my toe into en Primeur from Burgundy based on advice. They have won many awards and I expect SVS to win many more. Brian from Kent.

This is my all time favourite wine merchant. Innovative in approach, with a wonderful selection of new and old world wines. By far the best delivery service too, even in these straitened times!
