BOTTLE OF AA BADENHORST SECATEURS CINSAULT GRENACHE SHIRAZ BLEND
Cinsault (54%), Grenache (23%), Shiraz (23%)
This is the 9th vintage of Secateurs Red blend bottled under the Badenhorst Family Wines. The hefty Cinsault component will ensure excellent ageing 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 Hermitage in those days!
The aromas are perfumed, peppery, spicy 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 and freshness to finish dry and refreshing. In the mouth the texture and fineness of fruit tannin and drinkability of the wine is immediately evident.
