Splash this into a decanter to release its fragrance and you’ll find a fresh, brisk chenin. It has the generous, waxy texture of the variety, the chew of the fruit skin, along with hints of lanolin that make it a natural partner to chèvre. Secateurs is Adi Badenhorst’s "second tier" from the 69 acres of unirrigated bush vines he and his cousin, Hein, own in Siebritskloof, on Paardeberg Mountain.
The 2013 Secateurs Chenin Blanc, which comes from bush vines planted on granite slopes, has a pleasant, simple bouquet with dried lemon peel, a touch of marzipan and lime flower that is well-defined. The palate is well-balanced with a slight viscosity on the opening, but the feisty acidity then kicks in and lends the middle and finish satisfying tension and vibrancy. There is a pleasant bitter lemon twist on the aftertaste that drags you back for another sip. Great value - as always. Drink now. (NM)
TOP VALUE! The 2013 offers yellow apple, green melon, pear, chamomile and salted butter.
