The Sadie Family - 'Treinspoor' Tinta Barocca

Tasting notes
  • 91 Points - The Wine Advocate

    "he 2018 Old Vine Series Treinspoor made form Tinta Barocca begins quietly brooding in the glass with a serious nose that is dark-fruited. On the palate, the wine has an unrelenting tannic edge with a firm mineral grip that grabs you by the gum line and doesn't let go. The tannic expression echoes of Nebbiolo from Northern Italy. Clearly it will take years to settle down, or you are going to need carpaccio. Full-bodied and tightly mineral on the finish, the wine is going to need five to seven years before you can properly enjoy this bottle by itself." - Anthony Mueller

      The Sadie Family

      Eben Sadie is considered one of the great preservationists and visionaries in the new generation of South African winemakers. To Eben, the vineyard and fruit are part of the story—the truest expression of his art and philosophy. 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.”
