AA Badenhorst 2018 Secateurs Red BlendRegular price £12.95
Secateurs is named in tribute to the vineyard works who are out there in the winter, pruning the vines and already shaping the wine to come. This is tremendous value - a wine full of berry fruit flavours but overlayed with a subtle earthy complexity.
Enticing aroma of sweet red fruits, red cherry, but also a more savoury, almost leathery note. There is something really honest about this wine, not rough but not too polished. Some grip and plenty of freshness. Good value.
