Description

Eben Sadie’s ultimate Swartland red made with Syrah, Mourvèdre, Grenache, Carignan, Cinsaut & Tinta Barocca from 8 different vineyards. His philosophy is to make honest wine. In his own words, “bottle the brutal truth of the vintage”.

The 2018 vintage of Columella is testimony to the bigger dynamics a regional blend has access to: the challenges brought about by the drought were completely addressed in this multi-vineyard, multi-varietal wine from across the Swartland. This may be the darkest fruit we have ever been able to capture at 13.5% alcohol and with the presence of Syrah in decline in the final blend, the influence of Grenache, Cinsaut, Carignan and Tinta Barocca is more pronounced. Our Mouvedre component is the strongest it has ever been.

This 2018 bottling is a wine with a big temperament: explosive, but not excessive. It is like a plane with perfect aerodynamics, flying effortlessly; very much in line with the 2001, 2008 and 2011.
