Tasting Notes

A bit of a different take on Secateurs Rose this year, with Cinsault taking the leading role (90% of the blend) with the remainder being taken by Shiraz. The nose is entrancingly pretty with raspberries, wild roses and a hint of spearmint. On the palate citrus-macerated strawberries dance along the tongue interlaced with cranberries, redcurrants and a white pepper spice. Adi's Secateurs Rosé is definitely on the light, delicate side, so liberally quaffing it on its own, as an aperitif, is positively encouraged. If it is going to be paired with food, though, crustacea would have to be top of the list of options. A small mountain of garlicky prawns and naught else but a good supply of napkins would be very close to a dictionary definition of happiness. If you're feeling more sophisticated, a cold salad of lobster and mango would harmonise like a chord with this wine.
