Sadie Family Palladius


Eben Sadie is considered one of the great preservationists and visionaries in the new generation of South African winemakers. The wine writer Neal Martin recently called Sadie an “outspoken, peripatetic, terroir-obsessed winemaker who has been instrumental in putting Swartland on the map. He produces a small portfolio of comparatively expensive, but highly coveted wines based on Rhone varieties sourced from his seemingly never-ending search for pockets of old bush vines and unique terroirs. These are cerebral wines built to age.”

“The 2020 Palladius displays for the first time in many years a cordial lime, citrus and zesty entry point on the aromas that follow through and then develop into mineral/salty qualities that spill over into some secondary white stone fruit aromas. For the first time, these stone fruit aromas made their appearance in the 2019 bottling. The wine has a firmly textured structure, the tannin is exceptionally compact, and the volume seems to be suspended in its weight. The colour of this 2020 Palladius is maybe the most striking in that it is perhaps the brightest and freshest it has been in years, especially for a wine that has been in a 24-month aging cycle in concrete, amphora and cask. As always, it is suggested to age this wine for a minimum of 4-6 years.” – Eben Sadie.
