2019 AA Badenhorst Family Wines Secateur Cinsault - (Bottle - 1/75cl)

A A Badenhorst is well known in South Africa for producing great wine with character.
Adi is of the third generation and a talented winemaker. He has worked in the Rhone Valley, New Zealand and then South Africa. Along with his cousin he bought a humble vineyard in Paardeberg with a run down winery.

Secateur range offer a great expression of grape varities and for a good value for money. 
2019 blend of mainly Cinsault (54%) completed with Grenache (23%) and Syrah (23%).

Vinification: All grapes are hand-picked, chilled overnight and then crushed into open concrete tanks for natural primary fermentation which lasts around two weeks. The tanks are pigeaged (foot stomped, with clean feet, normally!) twice daily during this time. The finished wine is run off into old casks and concrete tanks which have a low impact on the natural wine aromas and structures, ensuring the purity of fruit. 
Maturation: The blended wine is left on its gross lees in casks, foudres and concrete tanks for 7 months before being bottled. Before bottling the wine is lightly filtered but not reined(?).

“My winery looks like a … bomb shelter. The most expensive thing we have is our coffee machine” – Adi Badenhorst
