“I don’t like the term ‘winemaker’ at all – in the ‘making’, the virtue of terroir is lost”. After working overseas and then for Charles Back’s Spice Route, Eben Sadie launched the Sadie Family project in 1999, quickly acquiring a reputation as one of South Africa’s most dedicated farmers and a pioneer of characterful, single-plot wines.
Instrumental in putting Swartland on the map, Eben has become known for his flagship red and white blends – Columella and Palladius – and his eye-opening Old Vine Series, which revitalise ancient sites of bush vine Mediterranean varieties across the Cape. Energetic, elegant, expressive, and approachable, these are wines that show their true greatness with age.
A field blend of Cariñena, Cinsault, Garnacha, Mourvèdre, Syrah, Tinta Barocca, layered with dark red fruit, freshly cut flowers, black olives and spices. Juicy and fresh, with gentle grip, it will gain complexity and silkiness over the next two decades.
