Sadie Family Wines - Pofadder - Cinsaut - Swartland - South Africa
Overview: Eben Sadie is considered one of the great preservationists and visionaries in the new generation of South African winemakers. To Eben, the vineyard and fruit are part of the story—the truest expression of his art and philosophy. The wine writer Neal Martin recently called Sadie an “outspoken, peripatetic, terroir-obsessed winemaker who has been instrumental in putting Swartland on the map. He produces a small portfolio of comparatively expensive, but highly coveted wines based on Rhone varieties sourced from his seemingly never-ending search for pockets of old bush vines and unique terroirs. These are cerebral wines built to age.”
Tasting Notes: 100% Cinsaut Again nothing overt and again a touch of reduction before plum and cherry on the nose. The palate is plump and juicy with lemon-like acidity and soft tannins.
Pairing: Moroccan Lamb, Coconut Curry Chicken
Points: 90 KE
Format / ABV: 750 ml / 13
