Badenhorst Family Wines, Papegaai, Palomino / Semillon, Western Cape, 2019 (Screwcap)


In Stock Now!

By European standards this is a strange blend: the Spanish Palomino grape, known for sherry; with Semillon, best known for dry and late harvest wines in Bordeaux - but it works. That linear chalkiness of the Palomino cuts the volume and pear flavour of the Semillon. This is very pale and crystal clear, light and fresh, and has a lightly saline finish. It's excellent as an aperitif with some almonds or other nibbles.Now-2021

Aromas of pineapple, citrus and candied pear and a flinty hint. The smooth, oily palate shows ripe apple, white pepper and lime peel bitterness. Part of the proceeds of this wine help fund research into the Cape Parrot, shown on the label. Sylvia Wu,Decanter, October 2020

Papegaai is named after the Cape Parrot, once common all over the Cape but now endangered, with a population of under 1,000 birds left in the wild in the Eastern Cape and Kwazulu Natal. Adi Badenhorst used to breed parrots and chooses to donate some of the proceeds of this wine to the Cape Parrot Trust.
