Legendary Port producer Dirk Niepoort and icon-winemaker Eben Sadie collaborated to produce the Cape Charme in 2008 and 2009. This revolutionary South African wine reflected the style of the Niepoort Douro Charme and was produced with traditional Douro winemaking techniques. It is arguably the first Swartland wine driven by freshness and elegance, picked early and without new oak. Only 600 bottles were produced of this Tinta Barocca, Grenache, Carignan and Pinotage blend and it is now extremely rare. The 2009 was a riper expression than the more Pinot Noir-like 2008, but both are evolving beautifully today.
