    Winemaker's Notes:

    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 immediately evident.

    Critical Acclaim:

    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.

    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.

    Just a bit of a disappointment. $15.99 is probably an OK price point for this one but I was really expecting more. Earthiness and tannin dominate with a little to much acid. There are other South Africans under $20 that appeal to me much more (cough glen carlou cough).
