AA Badenhorst Family Wines

The 2008 AA Badenhorst white is a different blend from the 2007 which was Roussanne dominated. We feel that Chenin Blanc is best suited to be the heart of the blend and that is why it forms the biggest portion of the blend. 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 flavour profile and has wonderful fruit volume characterised by stone fruit and mineral flavours. The finish is long and has slight phenolic edges supporting the fruit through the entire length of the wine.

Wine Spectator

Broad and ripe, offering gorgeous flavors of white peach, quince and melon that stay well-defined, with floral, blanched almond and green fig notes adding further length and dimension on the finish. Chenin Blanc, Roussanne, Grenache Blanc, Viognier, Verdelho and Chardonnay. Drink now through 2011. 415 cases made.

Score: 92. —James Molesworth, November 15, 2010.
