Luddite, Saboteur White Crown Cap 750ml 2018South Africa, Western Cape
Niels set out to make a white blend that was both serious and refreshing. It’s a Chenin Blanc based blend with different percentages of Viognier and Blanc Fumé, depending on the vintage. And it turns out that this new wine, with its new closure and new packaging, was an excellent tribute to the Saboteurs...it initially sold out within 3 days.
The grapes for the Saboteur range are sourced from Bot River and the neighbouring wine regions, making it a wine of origin Cape South Coast. Although the blends varied in 2016 and 2017, the vintages have lived up to the precedent set by the maiden vintage and have received great reviews (and excellent sales!).
Drink them and be inspired!
'What the Saboteur White from Luddite in Bot River has tended to lack in finesse, it makes up for in personality and the new 2018 is no different. A blend of Chenin Blanc, Viognier and wooded Sauvignon Blanc, the nose shows lots of flinty, smoky reduction, this character somehow quite winning, before lemon, naartjie, orange and some waxiness. The palate meanwhile is rich and thick textured (despite an alcohol of just 12.5%) but equally, there’s no shortage of verve and the wine is super-flavourful. Nothing subtle but so delicious!' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 93/100
