The Sadie Family Treinspoor 2017

R320.00

Part of the Old Vine Series of wines by The Sadie Family, this Tinta Barocca was made with grapes from a vineyard, near Malmesbury, planted in 1974. 

The wine was bottled unfined and unfiltered, so sediment can be expected over time. We strongly recommend putting a few bottles aside as this wine really needs a few years in bottle to show it’s true remarkable flavours. Currently it shows lots of spice, pine needles, aniseed and gun powder. It’s dense in colour and flavour and needs a serious piece of meat.

Description

Part of the Old Vine Series of wines by The Sadie Family, this Tinta Barocca was made with grapes from a vineyard, near Malmesbury, planted in 1974.

Historically Tinta Das Baroccas (the earlier pronunciation) has always had a good and prominent place in the Swartland region. This vineyard is located next to the old railway line (treinspoor) and was named accordingly.
The very, fragile thin skin of Tinta Barocca is prone to sunburn, but in this case the old bush vines have formed a great framework to keep the bunches sheltered from the intense Swartland sun. The good colour and firm acidity of this variety have made it a great and favourite component in blends from the outset. However, once a Tinta Barocca vineyard has
grown into old age, it has all the complexities and qualities to be bottled on its own.

The wine was bottled unfined and unfiltered, so sediment can be expected over time. We strongly recommend putting a few bottles aside as this wine really needs a few years in bottle to show it’s true remarkable flavours. Currently it shows lots of spice, pine needles, aniseed and gun powder. It’s dense in colour and flavour and needs a serious piece of meat.
