Lot 157

Sadie Family
Pofadder, 2013
3 (1 x 3) 750ml
Eben Sadie is South Africa’s most revered winemaker and he arguably kicked-started the fine wine revolution. Over two decades his pursuit for quality in the Swartland has been unparalleled in South Africa and he was voted Winemaker of the Year in 2017 by the International Master of Wine Institute.Only 450 cases of the Pofadder was produced, a 100% Cinsault from the Riebeek Mountain. It gets its name from the serpentine shape of the mountain and forms part of Sadie’s Old Vine Series (Ouwingerdreeks), South Africa’s most sought-after wines.

Remarkably delicate, transparent 13 (5*) honours old-vine cinsaut’s vibrant, pure red fruit & sensuous gossamer-like texture. Unfined/filtered & no new oak for extra-ethereal fruit expression. From a vineyard near Riebeek-Kasteel, like 12 & previous.’ – Platter’s SA Wine Guide 205, 5*

The 2013 Old Vine Series Pofadder brings to mind estuarine scents of mudflats and seaweed on the nose – you can almost hear the yacht’s ringing chiming in the breeze. The palate is very harmonious with crisp red cherry fruit, fresh strawberry and a touch of white pepper over a lattice of fine tannins, charged with immense vivacity and energy on the finish. This is simply beautiful. Neal Martin 95/100, Wine Advocate (2014)
