"The aromas are perfumed, peppery, spicey, smokey and exhibit ripe red fruit notes. The palate is supple, smooth on the entry but with enough grip and freshness to finish dry and refreshing. In the mouth the texture and fineness of fruit tannin and drinkability of the wine is immediately evident." —winemaker
"The 2013 Secateurs Red Blend comprises of 83% Shiraz with 10% Grenache and 7% Cinsault. It offers bundles of ripe strawberry and raspberry fruit on the nose with just a touch of chocolate that becomes more accentuated with time. The palate is actually better than the nose with crisp tannin and well judged acidity, fine tension with blackberry, dried blood and oxtail notes furnishing the finish. The more this stays in the mouth, the more you warm to its charms." —Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate

"This offers a mix of open-knit cherry and blackberry fruit studded with dried anise and pepper notes. A light brambly spine holds the finish. Shiraz, Grenache and Cinsault. Drink now. 10,000 cases made." —James Molesworth, Wine Spectator
