The 2015 Secateurs Rosé is a blend of 50% Cinsault, 48% Shiraz, and a pinch of Grenache and Carignan. It has a heady, very perfumed vanilla-tinged nose that reminds me of the strawberry macaroons I buy from Merignac airport when I leave Bordeaux (they are delicious incidentally). The palate is more reserved than the nose suggests with crisp acidity and impressive weight. The wine is still a generous and flavor-packed Rosé that retains control and delineation right to the finish. This is an excellent Rosé from Adi Badenhorst.

Fuchsia highlights the bright pink color of this rosé. It emphasizes the herbal spice of cinsault with a flavor of strawberries dipped in black pepper. Broad and juicy in the middle, then lean in the end, this is a clean rosé built for grilled pork.

A pretty rosé, with light bergamot, blood orange and strawberry core notes laced with an echo of mint. Drink now. 3,100 cases made.
