Eben Sadie Sequillo Wines Paardeberg South Africa
It was once said that Eben Sadie believes his own bullshit, the fact of the matter is that Robert Parker also does and so does the Gouda Book Club, President Obama, Prince Charles and Lolly Jackson. The 'Baby Jesus' of the South African wine industry.

SADIE FAMILY WINES - COLUMELLA 2010 - John Platter 5* 2013. 75% Syrah, 23% Mourvedre and 2% Grenache. Very spicy and immense fresh red fruit flavours on the aromatics with some very delicate violet notes. On the palate the tannins are extremly well defined in terms of the same characteristics that one finds on the nose, carrying through. A great all round freshness and lingering aftertaste. The marginal cooler season also preserved more acidity and freshness and this vintage should age well over the next 20 years to enjoy. R 690
SADIE FAMILY WINES - PALADIUS - Chenin blanc, Grenache Blanc, Clairette Blance , Viognier, Chardonnay, Roussanne, Semillon, Palomino blend. Displays the characters of tropical fruits and limey notes and slight nuances of almonds and hay. The aromatics of the wine also have a very salty and mineral character that comes more forth in the mouth feel and aftertaste. The 2010 vintage displays a firm acidity and freshness on the finish, which adds to the prolonged aftertaste. The 2010 stands to be a wine well worth cellaring for the next 15 years and beyond and we suggest decantation for up to two hours in the youth of the wine. Platter 2010 White Wine of the Year. R 490
SEQUILLO WHITE 2011 - Chenin Blanc, Palomino, Semillon Blanc, Grenache Blanc, Semillon Gris, Viognier, Clairette blend. With fermentation in old barrels up to as long as 9 - 11 months. Refined and elegant blend with early drinkability and a beautiful fresh finish. Very sophisticated minerality imparted by increased percentages of Palomino and Clairette which have also added to the overall complexity of this delightful wine! R 150
SEQUILLO RED 2010 - Syrah, Mourvedre, Grenache, Carignan and Cinsault blend. Distinct spicy and herbal flavours with underlying fresh, red fruit aroma. Great density on the palate suggesting good ageing capacity. R 150
