Tasting Notes

Certainly fresher than some previous vintages, but full of zing and immensely mouth-watering! Struck rock, clotted cream and orange blossom, just ripe greengage and honeydew melon, with a lightly creamy, leesy palate and zingy, white peppery finish.

More Info

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? 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. We firmly believe that Adi Badenhorst is the most exciting winemaker in South Africa. He is also the most frustrating. His laid back, self-deprecating, playful manner keeps you guessing and makes you wonder whether he has any idea what he is actually doing, whether he just chucks some grapes into a vat and hopes for the best, but we know full well that there is a huge amount of expertise that goes on behind closed doors, when no one is around to witness his skill and diligence ...and spoil his reputation!

FROM THE PRESS

“"A fabulous bargain. Overdelivers in the most delightful way" ”
Jancis Robinson MW
“One of the best value wines on the market, fresh unwaxed lemon rind, zesty, juicy and zippy. Adi says he just lets nature work on these wines, hints of pineapple, appealing.”
Roger Jones, The Buyer
