David and Nadia Sadie are based in the Swartland, and believe that wine is all about natural balance, purity and freshness and that these qualities can only be rightfully expressed when the soil and vineyards are respected. They work with various vineyards and like-minded farmers in the Swartland that share our vision and focus is on different soil types, mountain terrain and mainly bush vines with a minimal intervention approach in the cellar.
Grapes from twelve different Swartland vineyards are used (the age of the Chenin blanc vineyard vary from 33 to 49 years and the Sémillon was planted in 1960 and 1972), mostly bush vines and dry land farmed. The blend consists of Chenin blanc, Viognier, Roussanne, Sémillon and Clairette blanche.
An enticingly exotic nose showing notes of flowers and dried grass followed by peach, apricot, melon and pineapple. The palate has lovely fruit expression, zippy acidity and a savoury finish. Intricate and balanced, this moves really well – great entry and side-palate before a long finish.
A delicious partner to braaied yellow tail.
