A Badenhorst is a family run estate, owned by cousins Hein & Adi. Their family have over 50 years’ experience in South Africa’s wine industry, with their grandfather managing the iconic Groot Constantia. Together these two have restored a neglected cellar that was last used in the 1930′s to make natural wines in the traditional manner.
This wine from Adi is a blend of Chenin Blanc and Grenache Blanc, however differently to his other wines this spends around 2 weeks on the skins to create an light orange wine. Loads of texture with bruised apples and soft stone fruit!
You know Orange wines have really arrived when a winemaker of such distinction produces an example of this quality. Distinctive and delicious, this is a food wine that might just convert you to the many joys of this style
