This is the 4th vintage of Secateurs Red
blend bottled under the Badenhorst Family
Wines. We are very happy with the quality
of this wine and expect it to develop
wonderfully over the next couple of years.
The heafty Cinsault component will ensure
excellent aging 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 aromas are perfumed, peppery, spicey,
smokey and exhibit ripe red fruit notes.
As always the palate texture of this style of
wine is supple, smooth on the entry but
with enough grip to end dry and refreshing.
In the mouth the texture and fineness of
fruit tannin and drinkability of the wine is
"The palate is medium-bodied with fresh, ripe redcurrant and
wild strawberry fruit. It is very pure with supple tannins and
a refined, natural finish. This is beautifully crafted courtesy
of the inimitable Mr. Badenhorst."
The Wine Advocate
"Good full red. Musky strawberry and candied raspberry aromas are complemented by spices, minerals and tree bark, plus a smoky, saline quality. Suave and seamless in the mouth, with insidious smoky minerality giving shape to the almost liqueur-like red berry and saline flavors. Finishes silky and long, with dusty tannins and lingering sweetness. Distinctly Old World in the best sense."

the quality aspect.
At the turn of the century (1900, that is), a surplus of wine in South Africa created a hierarchy of cooperatives, the
biggest and best known being KWV. This organization seemed to favor quantity over quality and had most...Read More About South Africa
