Family White 2015 Magnum 1500ml
92 points, “This has built a strong track record over the years and the 2015 adds to the canon of superb white blends from Adi Badenhorst.” – Wine Advocate
Adi Badenhorst is one of South Africa’s most exciting winemakers and has been a pivotal player in the ‘Swartland Revolution’, which has propelled this once neglected wine growing region into the limelight. Adopting a dynamic and experimental approach, the wines of Badenhorst are made using old-vine fruit from long established vineyards and vinified using traditional and non-interventionist methods.
The Family White is a complex blend of ten different grape varieties: Chenin Blanc, Roussanne, Marsanne, Grenache Blanc, Viognier, Verdelho, Grenache Gris, Clairette Blanche, Semillon and Palomino. So, imagine a South African classic crossed with a Rhône white and finished with a splash of Sherry. Ripe and textured in its profile, this is a wonderfully perfumed wine with notes of ripe peach, lemon curd, melon, candle wax, citrus blossom, spice, fennel, verbena and herbal tea. And it’s evolving and maturing sensationally in this magnum.
Consider pairing with roast chicken, fruity tagine or a slow-cooked cassoulet.
