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.
“Our Paardeberg sustainably farmed vineyard planted in the early 2000’s is responsible for the core of this wine, blended with a similarly aged organically certified vineyard planted in deep rich clay soils, north of Malmesbury. Grenache as our ultimate red variety shows once again why this variety is well suited to the Swartland in its droughts and harsh conditions. Four weeks on the skins pre-/during fermentation, 60% whole bunches, one punch down per day, minimum and gentle extraction. Pressed off and matured in old 500 L neutral French oak barrels for a year”. – David & Nadia
Very tight and youthful with firm grape tannins that are laced with delicate, feminine perfume of pomegranate & sour cherry.
Serve lightly chilled ( 15degC ) with springbok carpaccio topped with fresh rocket and balsamic vinegar.
