2011 A.A. Badenhorst "Secateurs" Red Rhône Blend Swartland
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2011 Secateurs Red Blend has light raspberry, briary and tertiary scented bouquet that is vibrant and demonstrates wonderful clarity. 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. Drink now-2015.
Delivers friendly, pure cherry, plum and white pepper notes, with subtle toast shading the finish. Shiraz, Cinsault, Grenache, Mourvèdre and Pinotage.
