Professional Wine Reviews for Aa Badenhorst Secateur Rose 2013

Rated 88 by Robert Parker
The 2013 Secateurs Rose is a blend of 57% Cinsault, 27% Shiraz and 16% Grenache. It has a bright cherry color. The nose is a little subdued at first opening with light cherry notes, but there is plenty of crisp red cherry and citrus fruit on the palate that offers tension and crispness that complements the weight that the Shiraz component lends. This is a delicious rose. Drink now.

Additional Information on Aa Badenhorst Secateur Rose 2013

Winery: Aa Badenhorst

Region: Coastal Region

South Africa is a fascinating country for wine, and the coastal regions at the very tip of the African continent are widely regarded as being one of the finest wine regions in the world. It isn't difficult to understand why the early European settlers in the 17th century saw such potential for viticulture in the area; the heat is fantastic, the summer days wonderfully long, the soil rich in minerals, and the strong winds coming from the ocean provide much needed coolness in which the grapes could ripen slowly and fully. Over time, South Africa's coastal regions became covered in strong, healthy vineyards, and today, the wine industry of the region is booming. The past few decades have seen wineries experimenting with a wide range of grape varietals, and also producing fortified wines and sparkling wines of great character alongside their classic varieties.

Country: South Africa

As geographically diverse country, with everything from lush green valleys to areas of arid desert, mountainsides and river estuaries, South Africa unsurprisingly produces a huge range of excellent wines. Regions such as the Breede River Valley consistently impress with their Semillon wines and the lush, fruity Ruby Cabernets grown and processed here, and the cooler region of Overberg is attracting much attention as a result of their silky Pinot Noir bottles. However, all over the oceanic tip of this fascinating country, traditional methods dating back over three hundred years are combining with modern technologies to produce some of the finest examples of New World wines to be found anywhere on the globe.
