Badenhorst Family Wines Secateurs Chenin Blanc 2020South Africa /Stellenbosch /Chenin Blanc
"The first Secateurs Chenin Blanc bottled under the Badenhorst Family Wines range was in 2009 and was the start of a lifelong affair with this most wonderful grape. The 2020 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 2020 vintage was characterized by a long ripening period in mild conditions and has the effect of good ripe flavors and fresher acidity than in previous years"
- Producer's Notes
"This wine had the beautiful, rich texture that I often find in good examples. I have to say, I was thoroughly impressed with this wine. It was a great value at just $16."
