Tasting Notes

Hard to believe, but this is the 6th vintage of Secateurs Red blend bottled on the estate! A blend of Shiraz, Grenache and Cinsault from unirrigated, old bushvines in the beautiful and scorchingly hot Swartland. Adi, ever a purveyor of Cinsault (or Hermitake as it was known in the old days) ensures a hefty dollop is added to the blend. The hero grape of South Africa - the Cinsault component ensures excellent ageing, as well as immediate drinkability - a lovely smooth, supple palate. As Adi has always said, he hopes to imitate "the great old wines of the Cape."
