AA Badenhorst Family Wines Secateurs Rose 750ML
AA Badenhorst Family Wines secateurs - shape our bushvines during the winter pruning and are used to pick the ripe grapes in summer. Our family has, for the last three generations, nurtured our vines so that they can produce fruit of integrity. This is a truly unique rose as it was made from very old vines and really displays the minerality that characterises the wines from our farm. The aromas are complex red fruits, spice, rose water, currants and the palate is generous and textured with a long finish.
The 2013 Secateurs Rose is a blend of 57% Cinsault, 27% Shiraz and 16% Grenache. It has a bright cherry color. The nose is a little subdued at first opening with light cherry notes, but there is plenty of crisp red cherry and citrus fruit on the palate that offers tension and crispness that complements the weight that the Shiraz component lends. This is a delicious rose. Drink now.
