Eben Sadie is South Africa’s most revered winemaker and he arguably kick-started the local 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. The rich 2008 Palladius is Chenin Blanc-driven in a 7-variety blend. It was named after the Roman author who continued Columella’s work and is considered one of South Africa’s best white wines.
'A blend of several white varities, 30% fermented in concrete eggs, 70% in old 500 litre barrels. Deep yellow colour. Lovely fresh, intense nutty and lemony notes with some herbiness. Quite complex. A beautiful white wine with lovely freshness, intensity and complexity.’ Jamie Goode, 94/100
