AA Badenhorst Family Wines Dassiekop Steen 2018

(96 pts)

AA Badenhorst range
Category: Chenin blanc wooded, dry

All 5 chenin vineyards picked at similar ripeness levels; this the highest alcohol (14.5%) & richest fruit character. 2018’s generous apricot & peach tones beautifully balanced by vibrant but not assertive acidity, liquorice lift. Like all the chenins, fermented in large 60 year old vats, aged in varying sizes of older oak (here 500L, 14 months) for breadth & depth, not flavour. 2017 untasted.

Wine tasted by Newcomer/Returnee Team 1.
