Badenhorst Family Wines Red Blend Secateurs Red Blend 2009

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

I have always encouraged wine consumers to pay close attention to South African wines, and the Badenhorst Secateurs is a shining example why. Rich and spicy on the nose; the body opens to classic Rhandocirc;ne notes of earth, smoke, and dark, jammy fruit. A blend of Shiraz, Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cinsault and Carignan, and a great representation of the elegance (and value) of South African wines.

AA Badenhorst Family Wines are grown, made and matured on Kalmoesfontein farm in the Swartland appellation of South Africa. The 28ha of old bushvines grow in the Siebritskloof part of the Paardeberg mountain. The property is owned by the dynamic and good looking cousins Hein and Adi Badenhorst. They are originally from Constantia. Their grandfather was the farm manager of Groot Constantia for 46 years. Their fathers were born there and farmed together in Constantia, during the days when people still ate fresh vegetables and Hanepoot grapes, drank Cinsault and there were a lot less traffic lights and hippies still had a presence. Together these two have restored a neglected cellar on the farm that was last used in the 1930′s to make natural wines in the traditional manner. Read less

Juicy, displaying a core of crushed plum, blackberry and black cherry fruit held together by bittersweet cocoa and graphite notes. The fresh, racy finish then takes over. Very solid. Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cinsault, Mourvandegrave;dre, Grenache and Carignan. Drink now.
