Platter * * * * - Adi Badenhorst has turned out yet another stunning vintage of his
Secateurs Chenin Blanc. It has texture, tang and an
alliteration-spoiling freshness that lights up the palate with apple
strudel and peach crumble flavours, showing a lovely texture that grips
the palate with juicy ripeness and zesty lift.
Platter * * * * - Highly aromatic, with hints of aromas of Jasmine, peach and overtones of oak on the nose followed by a rich and opulent palate of orange rind, quince and white peach. Soft but full, an ideal accompaniment to fish and poultry dishes.

2015 not rated yet but better than 2014
Platter * * * * - Round, rich Shiraz oozes fleshy mulberries, 2013 is deliciously drinkable.
This elegant expression of cool climate Syrah exhibits soft plum, dark cherry and complex spicy notes of pepper, cinnamon, cloves and crushed coriander. The palate is full and lush, broad on entry and rich in dark fruits.
