Notes

David & Nadia is a family owned Swartland driven project and they focus on a spectrum of organic, old and dry land bush vine vineyards from different areas with different soil types throughout the Swartland, farmed by like-minded people.

They are members of the Swartland Independent Producers. In the vineyard they aim for biological farming and in the cellar they work as natural as possible. It is all about the soil and vineyards after all. They believe in a pure, fresh and natural style where site and soil are at work with minimal influence from a winemaking point of view.

Tasting notes:
'On of a handful of Grenaches that are finally establishing the variety’s claim to greatness in the Cape, this comes from the Paardeberg and Malmesbury. Pale and graceful, with restrained alcohol, some whole bunch spice and fine-grained tannins. Brilliant winemaking. 2019-27.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2018, 95/100

'The 2017 Grenache comes from two dry-farmed vineyards and saw three-and-a-half weeks’ skin contact, including 30% to 50% whole bunches, the remainder destemmed but not crushed, then matured in used oak for 12 months. It has a perfumed bouquet of mineral-rich cranberry and crushed strawberry aromas, very detailed and focused. The harmonious palate is medium-bodied, with sappy red berry fruit laced with white pepper and clove, leading into a natural, white-pepper-infused finish that lingers in the mouth. Classic Swartland Grenache.' – Neal Martin Report 2018, 93/100

'Top notes of fynbos and fresh herbs plus a sort of pink sweet dustiness before red cherry and cranberry. Light bodied with lemon-like acidity and fine tannins, the finish gently savoury. Very likeable but arguably a little insubstantial.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za 90/100
