2019 A.A. Badenhorst, Secateurs Red, Swartland
AA Badenhorst Family Wines are produced in the Swartland appellation of South Africa. The winery comprises 180ha of old bushvines grown in the Siebritskloof part of the Paardeberg mountain.

The property is owned by cousins Hein and Adi Badenhors who have restored a neglected cellar on the farm that was last used in the 1930's to make natural wines in the traditional manner.
The vineyards comprise mostly old bushvines planted in the 1950’s and 1960’s to Chenin Blanc, Cinsault and Grenache. The vines are unirrigated and farmed as biologically as possible.

Grapes are whole bunch-handled so no crushing or destemming takes place. The whites are transferred directly to old casks or into concrete tanks for fermentation and ageing.
The red grapes are fermented in concrete tanks and open wooden kuipe. The post fermentation maceration is lengthy – up to 4 months -whereafter the wines are put to cask or 4000L foudres. No additions are done to the grapes other than sulphur before and after fermentation.

The Secateurs Red Blend captivates with expressive notes of blackcurrants and blackberries, offering a balanced palate with moderate acidity for a pleasantly soft mouthfeel. The wine finishes with lasting notes of blueberry, black currant, and subtle mineral notes from the granite-rich soils.

2021 A.A. Badenhorst, Secateurs Red, Swartland
AA Badenhorst Family Wines, situated in South Africa's Swartland appellation, spans 180ha with old bushvines on the Paardeberg Mountain.

Owned by cousins Hein and Adi Badenhorst, they revived a neglected 1930s cellar for traditional winemaking. The vineyards boast mainly 1950s-60s Chenin Blanc, Cinsault, and Grenache bushvines, cultivated without irrigation in a biologically friendly manner.

Grapes undergo whole bunch handling, whites fermenting in old casks or concrete tanks, while reds ferment in concrete tanks and open wooden kuipe with a lengthy post-fermentation maceration.
Minimal intervention is a hallmark, with only sulphur added before and after fermentation.

He has worked in the Rhone Valley, New Zealand and then South Africa. Along with his cousin he bought a humble vineyard in Paardeberg with a run down winery.The Secateur range offers a great expression of grape varieties and good value for money. The Chenin Blanc 2021 is outstanding.Vinification: The grapes are hand picked with great care and chilled overnight in a cold room. The following day they are (whole bunch) pressed in a settling tank. These vineyards are picked over a period of 12 days and each day fresh juice is added to the already fermenting tanks –this extends the alcoholic fermentation by about 20 days but is also very important in the complete integration of the wine as all the various vineyards or components are fermented together. Some of the juice is also fermented in older casks and big f

2018AA Badenhorst Kalmoesfontein White Blend is a premium wine.
Small parcels of selected fruit are sourced from various vineyards on  Kalmoesfontein Farm, specifically the Paardeberg. From the old vineyard, the grapes are mainly Chenin Blanc and several other grapes.

The grapes are cooled down over night and most of them are pressed together (whole bunches) the next morning. The juice is then transferred to old casks for co-fermentation and maturation. A small percentage of the grapes are picked a bit earlier for some acidity but the rest are picked at what is reckoned the right time for good ripeness and flavour.
Maturation: Only 1200L foudres and a 3000L foudr
