About

90

"The 2016 Secateurs Red is a blend of mainly Shiraz with Cinsault and Grenache, although from 2017 it will shimmy over to a more Cinsault-dominated blend. It has an attractive bouquet of cranberry, wild strawberry and a light ferrous note - fresh and very alluring. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannin and crisp acidity, and sappy in the mouth, offering ample red berry fruit laced with black tea and sage toward the finish. Factor in the price and you can understand why this sells a lot of cases in the United States and the UK. Superb."
