Badenhorst Family Wines Secateurs Red Blend 2013, South Africa 

My Rating 85 Points.   

Price $15. 

Ruby in color with medium intensity and a wide reddish rim.

Earthy nose with blueberries, plums, currants, oak, vanilla, vegetables, earth, bitter herbs, almonds, metals, tar, pencil lead, peppercorn and bitter chocolates.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity and nice legs.

Dry and earthy on the palate with plums, strawberries, raspberries, vanilla, oak, licorice, cloves, earth, leather, green pepper and peppercorn.

Short finish with round tannins and spices.

A Nice Shiraz blend from South Africa, and a good every day red wine. Nicely balanced with mild complexity. Earthy and a good wine for food, but also by itself.
It has a light mouthfeel with a kick on the ending.

A blend of 83% Shiraz, 10% Grenache and 7% Cinsault. Grapes are grown on granite soil and fermented in concrete vats.

13.5% alcohol by volume.

      1. So, I managed to find a 2014 vintage and drank it with my sister in law last week. It was literally the last one on the store shelf. I am back in Cape Town and have found 2 bottles of the 2015 vintage. I will be opening one and keeping the other to see what a few years lying down does for it. I will definitely look to visit the wine estate here. Thanks for sharing and I always get that little but extra excited when South African wines are recognised by the international wine fraternity
