Eben Sadie is South Africa’s most revered winemaker and he arguably kick-started the local fine wine revolution. Over two decades, his pursuit for quality in the Swartland has been unparalleled in South Africa and he was voted Winemaker of the Year in 2017 by the International Master of Wine Institute. His 2009 release of old-vine, single-vineyard wines was a ground-breaking initiative in reviving forgotten, century-old vineyards. The first vintages of Skurfberg, Kokerboom, Pofadder and T’Voetpad along with the once-off Eselshoek and legendary Mev. Kirsten are the rarest modern South African wines. This collectors’ case is magnificently presented with labels done by William Kentridge.

Winemakers notes:
‘The idea behind this series is to raise awareness of the old vineyards of the Cape and also display the amazing wine that can be produced from these historic parcels of vines. We have decided to start farming these vineyards in their totality; and the good news is that the bigger critical mass of the project has led to a better scale of economy, which allows us to re-invest in the vineyards again. The result after one year has been very good: better vineyards and better production and a growing awareness of the potential of these old die-hards.’ – Eben Sadie, Winemaker

Tasting notes:
Sadie Family, Eselshoek 2009
‘Made from 110 yr old Muscat d’Alexandrie (Hanepoot), this had to be picked unripe before the birds got to the grapes. They were then bunch-dried on lines under shading nets to give the wine an unprecedented acidity as well as sweetness. Old oxidative colour and nose, but incredibly fresh and lively palate with raisined fruit and a baked apricot finish.’ – Cathy Marston

Sadie Family, Skurfberg 2009
‘Palest gold. Lightly honeyed nose, really enticingly aromatic. and such concentration and bite that I wondered whether it had a bit of skin contact. Eben says the basket press may make the difference. Very long. Chock full of personality, even a little salty. Lightly chewy and middle-aged rather than old. Sort of alkaline finish somehow. Excellent nerve.’ – Jancis Robinson

Sadie Family, Kokerboom 2009
‘Made from approximately 70% white and 30% red Semillon, all vines about 80 years old. Initial nose of herbal honey gives way to a rich, unctuous palate with hints of green leaves. Lemon peel finish, very satisfying wine.’ – Cathy Marston

Sadie Family, Mev. Kirsten 2009
‘From the oldest Chenin vineyards in the Cape, now sadly dying as it enters its 90th year. A spicy, litchi-packed nose with an amazingly fresh palate and zippy acidity. A cinnamon/cream finish with baked pears.’ – Cathy Marston

Sadie Family, T. Voetpad 2009
‘A field blend of Semillon (red and white), Palomino and Chenin Blanc, this has a powerful nose of rosehips and honeyed biscuits. Intense spicy flavours with hints of lemons and high acidity. Slightly rustic and needs food to show at best.’ – Cathy Marston

Sadie Family, Pofadder 2009
‘The only red made from 45yr old Cinsaut. Lovely purple colour, pale and luminous. Flavours of cherries and leaves take you straight to Southern France, tarry edge with licorice and lots of rustic charm.’ – Cathy Marston
