2015 David & Nadia Pinotage Siebritskloof Swartland

SKU #1281651 93 points Decanter

 Pinotage like you’ve never had it before! David & Nadia Sadie focus on organic, dry-farmed bush vines on different soils across Swartland - these grapes come from the highest plots on the Paardebosch farm in Paardeberg - and they make their wines as naturally as possible. Early harvesting has given great freshness to the spicy, plum fruit and there’s lovely gentle toasty notes from 14 months in old French oak barrels. Beautiful label too, showing the bush vines and contour lines of the vineyard.

Jancis Robinson

 So accomplished! A thoroughbred. Excellent crunch and clarity. Pure, refined, modern. A world apart from the dirt and rubber of the old days of Pinotage. (RH)  (9/2016)

South Africa

- Now that it has adopted a multi-racial attitude, and now that the world has embraced its government and its exports, South Africa has become a major wine producer. Unfortunately, South Africa has had a difficult time joining the ranks of competitive winemaking countries. During the anti-apartheid sanctions in the 1980s, South African wine was dealt the huge blow when it was removed from the international market, and for political reasons it was quite difficult for wine producers to market wine to the black majority. Things are finally looking up for the wine industry here, and quality has never been higher. South Africa produces a grape cloned from Pinot Noir and Cinsault, called Pinotage, which is the country's unique varietal. Chenin Blanc (known as Steen) makes up one-third of its vines. Cabernet, Merlot, Pinot Noir and Shiraz are becoming increasingly popular as are Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay. Click for a list of bestselling items from South Africa.
