AA Badenhorst is a family run estate, owned by cousins Hein & Adi. Their family have over 50 years’ experience in South Africa’s wine industry, with their grandfather managing the iconic Groot Constantia. Together these two have restored a neglected cellar that was last used in the 1930′s to make natural wines in the traditional manner.
Secateurs Red Blend has gone from being Shiraz based to new a blend dominated by Cinsault with Shiraz / Grenache playing the supporting role. We're happy with the switch up because we with Cinsault is a fabulous grape and always a pleasure to drink!
The wine is smooth and elegant, filled with glossy and bright red fruit, but just that edge of earthiness.
