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.
On Kalmoesfontein it is back to basics, using traditional winemaking equipment and old cement kuipe. “We make wines with immense character. We’re using what we can afford. We are making the best wines we can. And we are having great experiences. I want to make something, involving interaction from my family.”
A blend of Shiraz, Cinsault, Cabernet Sauvignon, Carignan, Mourvedre and Grenache.
The aromas are perfumed, peppery, spicy, smoky and exhibit ripe red fruit notes. As always the palate texture of this style of wine is supple, smooth on the entry but with enough grip to end dry and refreshing. In the mouth the texture and fineness of fruit tannin and drinkability of the wine is immediately evident.
Perfect, everyday drinking wine and very food friendly! Enjoy it with a burger or pizza or an easy weekday pasta dish.
