Badenhorst Secateurs Red Blend 2015 (Shiraz/Cinsault/Grenache)A. A. Badenhorst
Country of Origin: South Africa (Swartland)
Grape Varietal: Blend 71% Shiraz, 21% Cinsault, 8% Grenache
This is the 6th vintage of the Secateurs Red Blend. The hefty Cinsault component will ensure excellent aging and enough suppleness for drinking young. The aromas are perfumed, peppery, spicy, smokey 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.
Recommended Food Pairing: Cured meats and sausages; roast chicken & pork; aglio olio pasta; savoury salads.
