Tinta Barocca 100%
A wine from Sadie Family "Old Vine" series, (Ouwingerdreeks.)
Often a "bit player" in South African red blends, there is now increasing interest in Tinta Barocca wines within the country, and particularly Swartland. The grape appears really well suited to the environment, and the best wines, such as this, really reflect the local terroir.
Using grapes from Swartland vines planted in 1974 from a vineyard next to the old railway line, (Treinspoor.) Fermentation is in concrete tanks then the wine is aged for 12 months in old oak foudres.
Eben Sadie established Sadie Family Wines in 1999, having spent the previous 8 years travelling the world learning from distinguished winemakers. The first wine he produced, Columella 2000, a Syrah based blend, was awarded 5 stars by the renowned Platters Guide. The quality of the wine and attention to detail has been maintained as the product range has expanded. Purity of the expression of fruit and terroir is the defining character of Sadie wines. This requires meticulous attention in the vineyard, to produce low yields of the highest quality fruit and in the winery, where grapes from individual plots are processed separately with minimal intervention.
