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. This limited vertical case of long-ageing, elegant Columella was released in 2016. It has scores up to 96/100 from Wine Advocate and Wine Spectator.
‘An astonishing Swartland wine.’ Neal Martin, Wine Advocate
