Lot 75

White, 2013
12 (2 x 6) 750ml
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.  

 Wine Storage

'A blend of Chenin Blanc, Clairette Blanche, Viognier, Verdelho and Palomino. Sensational nose – pear, peach and lemon but also dried herbs, wild flowers and some yeasty complexity. Rich but balanced, layers of flavour and a gently savoury finish. Really complex – defies proper description. A baby Palladius.’ – Christian Eedes, 93/100 (2014)

'Chenin Blanc, Clairette, Viognier, Verdelho, Palomino. Exciting tang on the nose. Honeysuckle start. Then it slightly falls away. Lots of density and grunt with a hint of coffee cream on the finish. A little hot.' – Jancis Robinson 16.5/20 (2015)
