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 property is owned by the dynamic and good looking cousins Hein and Adi Badenhorst. They are originally from Constantia. Their grandfather was the farm manager of Groot Constantia for 46 years. Their fathers were born there and farmed together in Constantia, during the days when people still ate fresh vegetables and Hanepoot grapes, drank Cinsault and there were a lot less traffic lights and hippies still had a presence. Together these two have restored a neglected cellar on the farm that was last used in the 1930′s to make natural wines in the traditional manner.

Tasting notes:
'Easier to drink than it is to spell, let alone pronounce for a non-Afrikaans speaker, this Tinta Barocca is purchased as grapes from a neighbouring farm. Opaque, tannic and typically spicy, rich and brooding, it has flavours of damson, fig and liquorice and some added texture from 10% stems. 2022-30.' – Tim Atkin SA Special Report 2019, 93/100

'Reduction, dark fruit and earth on the nose. Super-dense without being weighty, the tannins are firm making for an intensely dry finish. Alcohol: 13.5%.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 92/100
