"A fabulous bargain. Over-delivers in the most delightful way." Jancis Robinson MW

New Vintage Secateurs Chenin Blanc 2019

We're on 'essential' business today. Very sensibly, the government has just declared off-licence retailers, of which we are a proud one, an “essential” business during the lockdown.


I mean, we always knew wine was the first item on any sane adult human's survival-kit list, but it's nice of the gov to clear that up before they roll down the shutters on parliament for early recess.    

What better way of celebrating this official 'essential' status, this triumph of reason and clarity, than offering a fridge shelf essential?

Adi Badenhorst's Secateurs Chenin Blanc is probably the best bang-for-buck white wine we've ever sold. Why is this wine so special? Why does it win so much rapturous admiration (Eg, Jancis Robinson: "A fabulous bargain. Over-delivers in the most delightful way.")? Because it surprises people with its quality. You just don't expect to find an organic, old-vine Swartland chenin (yields as low as 4 tons/hectare - about the same as much premier and grand cru Burgundy), with this much character, texture and interest, at this price level.

In its 2019 incarnation, Adi's Secateurs is a wine that could probably part seas, end wars, even make Mrs Brown's Boys appear entertaining; it could certainly relieve those agonised pangs of self-isolation ennui.
