Sadie Family
Skerpioen, 2012
6 (1 x 6) 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.Named after the abundant native scorpions that make their home here, Skerpioen is an unirrigated 2.4-hectare, 80+-year-old vineyard of chenin blanc and palomino that forms part of Sadie’s Old Vine Series (Ouwingerdreeks).

Dried pear & mango, green olive tapenade, an unusual olive oil note, 12 presents its complexity quietly, layer upon layer, anchored by grapefruit freshness. A wonderful way to experience tiny 2T/hectare production of palomino & chenin.’ – Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2014, 4.5* 

A pure, chiseled style, with white peach, jicama, honeysuckle and salted almond notes, giving way to subtle brioche and shortbread hints through the long, finely tuned finish. This is sneakily long, showing good precision. Palomino and Chenin Blanc... 400 cases made.’ – Wine Spectator (June 2014), 92/100

Palomino and Chenin Blanc on beach sand and very chalky soil, right on the coast. Broad and a little soft but very tight. A curiosity. But, as usual from Eben Sadie, very well made.’ Jancis Robinson (June 2013), 16.5/20
