    Winemaker's Notes:

    The first Secateurs Chenin Blanc bottled under the Badenhorst Family Wines range was in 2009 and was the start of a life long affair with this most wonderful grape. The 2011 spent time on its lees in concrete tanks and this important part of the maturation of the wine shows in the incredible texture and palate weight of this wine. The aromas are flinty with honey, orange blossom and white stone fruit notes.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2012 Secateurs Chenin Blanc has a light but pure bouquet with lemon peel, grapefruit and hints of wet wool. The palate is crisp and vibrant on the entry with touches of lanolin and litchi nuts. This is so well balanced – uncomplicated but delicious.

    The Wine Advocate

    Bright and engaging, showing lots of white peach, Jonagold apple and Cavaillon melon notes, offset by a floral edge. The pure, unadorned finish sails on.

    I disagree w/debpar as well. This is a classic flavor profile of an old world chenin/vouvray. It does have a bit more minerality to it than even I'm used to, suggesting dry famred calcerous clay or limestone terroir. Not necessarily the 92 Parker gives it, but definitely in the 89-90 range for me. Paired very well w/shrimp scampi.

    The other rating is misguided. This is a classic Chenin Blanc from outside the Loire. If you like good Vouvray, you will like this wine. Good acidity gives it a backbone, with some minerality on the palate and nice structure. Excellent value.
