A A Badenhorst 'Kalmoesfontein White Blend 2016 94 pts Wine Spectator & 94 pts Wine & Spirits

Awards, Reviews and other Notes

94 pts Wine Spectator Web Only - 2019
This has developed beautifully, exhibiting an open-textured profile, featuring notes of roasted pineapple, hazelnut and fenugreek. Exotic flavors are supported by the firm acidic backbone flowing through, connecting all the elements and keeping this focused. Shows a long streak of sel gris on the finish that invites you back for more. Chenin Blanc, Grenache Gris, Grenache Blanc, Roussanne, Marsanne, Sémillon, Viognier and Colombard. Best from 2021 through 2034. 431 cases made, 250 cases imported.

Adi Badenhorst bases this blend on old-vine dry-farmed chenin blanc, then adds an array of other old-vine white grapes to the blend—the 2016 includes roussanne, grenache blanc, viognier, verdelho, grenache gris, clairette, semillon and palomino. It’s a wild, opulent white, the nutty notes and rich yellow-apple flavors countered with an elec- tric streak of lemon-pithy acidity. Sunny and cool at once, with a salty, stony savor, it’s a grand white wine, to decant now for buttery seafood dishes or to age for another decade.

Winemaker Notes

The aromas are very complex and change considerably in the glass. Perfume, spice, tea, stone fruit and citrus blossoms are some of the notes that can be detected. In the mouth the texture and ripeness and gentle tannins result in a wine that has incredible length and complex flavor profile. The wine also has wonderful fruit volume characterized by stone fruit and mineral flavors. The finish is long and has slight phenolic edges supporting the fruit through the entire length of the wine.
