    Adi Badenhorst one of the more righteous producers of South Africa with a strong currency in the reinvention of boutique wines there, and further. Here’s chenin from the beating heart (or edges) of Swartland region. Organic, natural winemaking. Importer: Ex Animo
    Squeaky, clean, texture, brightness, soft citrus characters, yellow stone fruit, a little nougat, fresh and really easy to drink. Some quiet detail set around bready notes/grilled nuts too. You’d drink this by the gallon. So would your pals. Easy. Drink 2021 - 2023.

    The 2020 Chenin Blanc Secateurs, which comes from 26 different vineyards, is matured in 500-liter barrels and stainless steel. It offers attractive yellow plum, dried honey and candle wax scents and just a touch of bruised apple in the background. The palate is well balanced with a spicy, stem-ginger-tinged entry, fine acidity and a subtle curry leaf note springing up on the finish. Just a delightful, easygoing Chenin Blanc from Adi Badenhorst. Drink 2021 - 2025.
