A. A. Badenhorst Secateurs Chenin Blanc 2014

Stellenbosch, Coastal Region, South AfricaWelcome to new wave South Africa, from the leading oracle of doing things traditionally, Adi Badenhorst. Savoury earthy herbs and salt lead the nose, before pear, stone, meadow blossoms and fennel join in. A welcome chenin waxy sheen coats the textured palate, drawing almond, pear, nut shell, subtle honeycomb, melon and citrus pith along with it. Lively, energetic acids finish off with savoury salts. Lovely focus and drinking well now, but will reward with 3-5 years cellaring.Tasted: 09 December 2015Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 23.00 private wine shops AB 24.00 MB 23.00 Producer: A. A.
