Adi Badenhorst is one of South Africa’s most exciting winemakers and has been a pivotal player in the 'Swartland Revolution,' which has propelled this once-neglected wine growing region in to the limelight. Adopting a dynamic and experimental approach, the wines of Badenhorst are made using old vine fruit from long established vineyards and vinified using traditional and non-interventionist methods. Secateurs White is predominantly made from old vine Chenin Blanc grapes which are sourced from Swartland mountain slope bush vines. All the grapes are carefully hand-picked and the wine is aged in tank for seven months on its lees before being bottled. The resultant wine is a rich and expressive white with a honeyed floral character that suggests aromas of orange blossom, peach, biscuit and lemon. The palate is medium-bodied and silky smooth with honeyed stone fruit and spice flavours. Offering excellent value for money, this incredibly drinkable white is equally as rewarding to drink on its own as it is to pair with simple fish, pasta and poultry dishes.
