Winemaker Notes

The grapes used are from our farm and a few of our neighbour's excellent fruit. Most vines are mountain sloped bushvines. We maintain that high quality fruit comes from old, un-irrigated bushvines grown on a variety of granite soils that are naturally low yielding. All grapes are hand-picked, chilled overnight and then crushed into open concrete tanks for natural primary fermentation which lasts around two weeks. The wine was left on its gross lees in cask, foudres and concrete tanks for 7 months before being bottled. The wine was lightly filtered but not fined before bottling.

This is the 9th vintage of the Secateurs Red blend bottled under 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 Hermitake 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.
