Badenhorst secateurs Shiraz Cinsault

Smooth and elegant South African red.

AA Badenhorst is a family run estate, owned by cousins Hein & Adi. Their family have over 50 years’ experience in South Africa’s wine industry. Over the years this red wine has changed from being a punchy blend based on Syrah to a graceful on ebased on Cinsault. Adi says "We’ve turned the Red Blend a bit upside down…Why? Because Cinsault is a fabulous grape and always a pleasure to drink". The Secateurs shiraz cinsault is full of dark fruits with undertones of earth and is balanced by a freshness from dried raspberries and red cherry. This wine is easy drinking and is perfect to drink on its own or with food.

What is Organic wine

What is Organic wine

Organic wine literally means the wine has been made from grapes which are farmed organically. This means no chemical fertilizers or herbisides have been used on the vineyard. 

Organic wine is defined as wine made with grapes farmed organically but this is just the first phase in organic wine making, the second phase invovles the fermentation and preservation process and this is also vital in definign organic wine. 

The defination of organic wine does vary country by country, in the US for example it is defined by the use or non use of perservatives such as sulphur but a seperate labeling system means a wine can be classed as Organic if the grapes are harvested from a 100% certifed farm even if sulphates are added at the winery. In the UK and Europe organic wine simply means that the grapes are farmed organically but to be certifed Organic the vineyards have to adopt specific practices throughout the winemaking process.
