Secateurs are the cutting tools that shape our bushvines during the winter pruning and are used to pick the ripe grapes in summer. This wine spent time on its lees in concrete tanks and old casks-this is an important part of the maturation and gives incredible texture and palate weight to the wine. The aromas are flinty with honey, orange blossom and white stone fruit notes.

The 2019 Secateurs, Badenhorst's super-successful entry-level label, comes from 26 Swartland vineyards and is matured in a combination of concrete and foudres . The nose grabs you by the olfactory senses with pineapple, saffron and tangerine aromas. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, nice focus and good weight on the simple but crisp lime and pineapple finish. Delicious and a great value to boot.

A floral version, with daisy and dandelion notes around the core of nectarine flavors. This is very primary, but stays friendly, showing good acidity for balance and a linear yet persistent finish. Drink now. 8,000 cases made, 7,500 cases imported.
