Badenhorst Secateurs Red Blend 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Tight and focused on the nose with a smoky top note and lots of sour red fruits framed with hints of sweet green spices and perhaps a hint of banana and band aid on the nose. With a very attractive blend of lightness and richness on the palate, this delivers a lovely textured wine, supported by integrated acids and rounded soft tannins. the fruit is a bit earthy with hints of mushroom and toasted nuts on the palate along with red cherry and strawberry flavors. Gaining some brightness on the midplate and a bit more spicy complexity, this flows to a slight austere, refreshing and juicy finish that shows off fresh raspberry flavors framed by dried herb, earth, and old wood notes. Fairly complex and with a very attractive texture. 89pts

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

The aromas are perfumed, peppery, spicy, smoky 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 to end dry and refreshing. In the mouth, the texture and fineness of fruit tannin and drinkability of the wine is immediately evident.
