Red, 2012

Sequillo is Latin for ‘an arid dry place of great purity’, a venture started by Eben Sadie at his Swartland cellar. Aiming to showcase Swartland’s terroir, he utilised Mediterranean and Rhône varietals best suited to the conditions to create a white and red blend. Quoted by Eben to be ‘some of my best releases to date’, this was the first time the varieties were co-fermented, resulting in greater integration, balance and ultimately a better wine. This vintage was one of the last to be released before Eben decided to focus fulltime on Sadie Family Wines. Sequillo red and white are now extremely rare.

'Syrah, Cinsaut, Tinta Barroca. Mid crimson. Mellow nose. Very sweet start and lots of fruit delivery. Round and spicy. Very gentle hand on the tannin extraction. Fun and interesting.' – Jancis Robinson 16.5/20 (2015)

‘A blend of Syrah, Cinsaut and Tinta Barocca. Red fruit, a touch of fynbos and spice. Rich and broad with moderate acidity and fine tannins. Easy like Wednesday evening (as opposed to Sunday morning). – Christian Eedes, 90/100 (2014),
