The Sadie Family - Palladius - White Wine

About This Item

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: The simplicity of minimalism. Every one of the 11 varietals that drive this wine seems to be in perfect synchronization. The aromas are a journey of tropical, ripe fruit aspects going all the way to a very saline and mineral texture. The most exciting aspect is the length and the persistence of the tannin on the palate

Pairing: Poached Salmon with Leek Beurre Blanc, Spring Pea Carbonara
