IT'S ALL IN THE DETAILS

Signature wine. 14% alc. First released in 2000, Columella is Sadie's most famous wine. While it is regularly described as an 'icon wine' of Swartland, and indeed South Africa, Eben Sadie's goal is simply to produce the best and most honest expression he can from Swartland as a whole. As such the blend includes all six of the seven official black grape varieties that grow within the region, sourced from a range of the soil types. The 2017 is 60% Syrah, with the remainder coming from Mourvèdre, Grenache, Carignan and Cinsault.

 

The fruit is sourced from both Sadie Family vineyards and rented parcels. This release was grown on seven different soil types--inc. granite, slate, gravel and sandstone--across nine separate vineyards in Paardeberg, Kasteelberg, Malmesbury and Piquetberg. The majority of the vineyards are low-yielding, old-vine parcels, though some of the Estate's younger material also plays its part. Many of the Syrah vines have been trained to their own pole, echelas style, as per the Northern Rhone. In terms of the winemaking, most of the fruit is destemmed, although each year an increasing percentage of the fruit is whole bunch. Sadie has a sorting team of 25 who discard between 8-15% of the berries each year.
