BADENHORST FAMILY WINES BADENHORST FAMILY WINES - White Blend - 2014

BADENHORST FAMILY WINES White Blend 2014

See the wine detail page

92 Points

Bright, pale straw-yellow. Musky, soil-driven scents of stone fruits, dusty herbs and almond. Rich, broad and mouthfilling, with surprising minerality and harmonious acidity shaping the yellow stone fruit, spice and soft citrus flavors. Offers a lovely balance of energy and sweetness, not to mention an ideal combination of density and airiness. Finishes with lovely length and drinkability, good grip and firmness and a touch of phenolic character. This is far more interesting than so much Chardonnay.
