A.A. Badenhorst 'Secateurs' Red BlendRegular price $16.99
82% Cinsault, 10% Shiraz, 8% Grenache. This is the 8th vintage of Secateurs Red blend bottled under the Badenhorst Family Wines. The hefty Cinsault component will ensure excellent ageing and enough suppleness for drinking young. As you know most of the great old wines of the Cape had a good dollop of Cinsault in them – called Hermitake in those days.
'The 2019 Secateurs, a blend of Cinsault, Grenache and Shiraz, offers attractive mulberry, dark chocolate and fynbos scents on the nose that transport you directly to the wilds of the Capelands. Lovely definition and focus. The palate is medium-bodied with a fresh opening. While the aromatics intimate a lush Swartland blend, this is in fact much stricter and more linear. Dark berry fruit, white pepper, sage and touches of curry leaf vie for attention, and the finish is both long and tender. Excellent considering the price.' - Vinous Media - 89 points
