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. Named after a Spanish agronomist who loved wine, Columella is a Syrah-dominated blend and Eben’s finest expression of the Swartland.

 

‘It has a very well-defined bouquet that repays time in the glass: wild strawberry and bilberry, cloves and white pepper, distant sea spray scents. The palate is medium-bodied with taut tannins, crisp acidity, superb backbone and real 'authority' on the finish. One of those wines that will instantly change anyone who does not take South African wine seriously.’  Neal Martin, Wine Advocate, 96/100
