The 2012 vintage of this was my wine of the week in June 2014 - my introduction to the excellent and exceptional work of David and Nadia Sadie. Pale - very pale - ruby. Very sweet, almost strawberry jam, on the nose, yet with sufficient refreshment. Great liveliness, poise and real minerally chew - granite-derived? Really distinguished - a southern hemisphere answer to Gredos Garnacha? Such a lovely take on this variety.
Jancis Ronbinson 17.5/20
Sourced from 3 Swartland blocks (1 organically farmed), 50% bunch pressed, 11 months older oak. Exceptional 2014 was wonderfully understated, with perfectly ripe grape tannins cradling delicate fruit. Charming 2015 in similar mould: fruit-filled without being fruity, seamless.
