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.
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.
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.
