    A perennial favorite of mine. Classic Swartland Chenin Blanc. Pure, unadulterated, amazingly drinkable white wine. There is so much easy soft fruit here with Chenin's slightly honeyed stone fruit characters and toasted grain notes. The wine is dry, but has a round, juicy character that makes it just so quaffable. Underneath this primary ripe fruit is a lovely underpinning of minerality from the old vines digging deep into those decomposed granite soils for which this region is becoming known. A fantastic value and a wine that I would recommend to just about any white wine drinker.
    Top Value!

    Year after year, The Badenhorst Family consistently makes quality value wines, the 2013 vintage might be the most impressive yet. A bit reminiscent of Chenin Blanc from Vouvray, this Chenin expresses aromas of honey, nuts, aloe and lemon grass. Flavors of stone fruits dominate the palate, with apple, pear, and nectarine while great minerality and acidity form a great structured, well balanced and extremely quaffable wine.

    I feel in love with this wine last vintage, and the 2013 is making me fall in love all over again! Classic Chenin Blanc texture with the silky honey and citrus fruit, with gorgeous minerality and a bright high acid finish that makes your mouth water. I will be drinking a lot of this again!
