'His manner is so relaxed he might as well be lying down,’ writes Neal Martin, describing Adi after his 2018 visit to Kalmoesfontein – the home of AA Badenhorst Family Wines. But don’t be fooled by Adi’s playful and coy demeanour. After a decade of farming 41 hectares of old vines, with the oldest planted in 1952, his tiny-production 2017 single vineyards are simply incredible.

How does he decide which vineyards to bottle separately? ‘These special parcels are rated 3 on the ‘golden tears’ scale,’ says Adi, referring to the tears these precious old vines make him and his team shed when entering the vineyard. These 3 Chenin Blancs are full and textured and have a vivid freshness that will allow ageing. The reds are more deft and elegant and hold amazing precision and depth.

Tasting notes:
'Pinot Noir isn't the first grape you associate with Adi Badenhorst, but this comes from the cool Ceres Plateau rather than steamier Swartland. Now in its third vintage, it's a fresh, tangy, crunchy style with 30% whole bunches and the focus on cherry and pomegranate fruit rather than oak. 2020-26.' – Tim Atkin SA Special Report 2019, 91/100

'Grapes from Ceres Plateau. Red cherry, a hint of rose-like perfume and spice on the nose. Juicy and fresh with fine tannins. Super-light and elegant. Alcohol: 12.5%.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 91/100
