2013 The Sadie Family Columella

Description

The flagship red of the Sadie range, Columella is a Rhone blend with an almost South Australian feel to it thanks to its opulence and richness (but at only 13.8% alcohol). With hand sorting of individual berries, this was fermented in large open top concrete fermenters, with a year in barrels and then another year on light less in large oval casks.

Smells

Very rich and dark, with lots of spice and blackcurrant, blueberry and liquorice.

Tastes

Superbly rich and detailed but very elegant, the complexity is benchmark, with exotic spices complementing the ample fruit and fine tannic structure. A wine for the longhaul, this will cellar over 20 years but can be approached with some time in the decanter prior to 2020. A very gratifying wine that will change the way you think about South African reds.
