Sadie Family Wines – led by Cape wine icon Eben Sadie – farm their estate organically and leave no stone unturned in the pursuit of ever-greater organic wines. Their accolade of ‘Winery Of The Year’ from Platter’s South African Wine Guide comes as no surprise and the five stars awarded to the Columella is well deserved.
Columella is named after Lucius Junius Moderatus Columella, author of ‘De Rustica’ (On Country Matters), the most comprehensive account of Roman viticulture that dates back over 2000 years.
Captivating, with a stunning array of raspberry, blackberry and loganberry fruit, unmatched richness and finesse balanced with acidity and a bright minerality. Finely grained tannins with a long velvety finish.
REVIEWS & AWARDS
“When I tasted the eight components of this wine from barrel, I thought it was one of the greatest Cape reds I’d ever tried. Now it’s in bottle, I’m not changing my mind: violets, plums, liquorice and very fine savoury tannins.” – Tim Atkin – Decanter Magazine, January 2010
