Medium pink, with a rose hue. The nose is complex, with red fruits, spice, rose water and currants. It has a generous mouthfeel and textured body, with a long, crisp, dry finish.
"The 2012 Secateurs Rose is a blend of Cinsault, Shiraz and Grenache. It has an attractive salmon color. The nose is a little muffled with light strawberry notes, gaining clarity with aeration and offering a fine waxy, resinous aroma. The palate is better, with crisp tart cherry fruit and a razor-sharp finish that has a long citric finish. Drink now. Adi Badenhorst is the charismatic winemaker who alongside Eben Sadie has put Swartland on the map. Outspoken, opinionated and talented, his charisma rubs off upon the wines he creates. Moreover, they are available at extremely affordable prices and serve as a perfect introduction to the delights of Adi’s and Swartland’s wines."
