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 their vision. Focus is on different soil types, mountain terrain and mainly bush vines with a minimal intervention approach in the cellar.
Planted on the highest slopes of the Paardebosch farm, in the Paardeberg, these dry-land farmed bush wines were planted in the 1990’s. Starting every season with the harvesting of Pinotage, these early ripening grapes allow for great freshness to be achieved as it escaped the heat waves of the Swartland during the rest of harvest. Cherry and bramble fruit, earthy savoury notes. Weightless intensity, soft but sufficient acidity and lovely ripe tannins. Spicy and long on the finish.
