Notes

David and Nadia Sadie head up their Swartland-driven project with passion while focusing on a range of organic, old-vine, dry land bush vine vineyards. They aim to produce fresh, natural wines with minimum intervention.

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. They are members of the Swartland Independent Producers.

Tasting notes:
'The 2017 Topography Range Pinotage was cropped in mid-January, before the whites, and matured in 2,000- and 4,000-liter foudres with around 10% whole bunches. It has a ripe blackberry, raspberry coulisand mint-tinged bouquet. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannin, quite masculine and structured with dark berry fruit, hints of tobacco and a sappy finish that will require two or three years in bottle to abrade the rigid tannin.' – Neal Martin Report 2018, 90/100

Red cherry and some floral perfume. Juicy and fresh with a little spice on the finish but generally quite soft tannins. Fun to drink but not nearly as compelling as previous vintages.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 89/100
