“Secateurs” are the pruning shears that appear on the front label of this (appropriately) hand-harvested wine from Adi Badenhorst, who has long been a champion of natural and traditional winemaking in South Africa. This blend is composed primarily of cinsault, shiraz, and grenache, all typically found in France’s Rhone valley. However, the warm Swartlandian climate and its distinctive granitic soils produce a wine that bears only a cursory resemblance to the two Rhone reds included in this month’s pass. Sure, there’s an abundance of ripe red berry flavor, perhaps a hint of smoke and spiciness, but it’s a little more fruit forward and less savory than the French offerings. Suitable for any casual meal, even lighter fare where a more earthy wine might be inappropriate. Great on its own as well!
