Badenhorst Secateur Chenin Blanc 2015, Swartland, South Africa
AA Badenhorst Family Wines are grown, made and matured on Kalmoesfontein farm in the Swartland appellation of South Africa. The 28ha of old bushvines grow in the Siebritskloof part of the Paardeberg mountain.
The owners Hein and Adi Badenhorst are originally from Constantia where their grandfather was the farm manager of the famous Groot Constantia for 46 years. Together they have restored a neglected cellar on the farm that was last used in the 1930’ s to make natural wines in the traditional manner.
Made from high quality fruit from old un-irrigated bushvines grown on a variety of granite soils that are naturally low yielding. Expect flinty aromas with honey, orange blossom and white stone.
