Characteristics of The Sadie Family Skerpioen

The Sadie Family Skerpioen is an ecological, barrel-aged white wine made by The Sadie Family winery with the Chenin Blanc and Palomino varieties in Swartland, Coastal Region (South Africa).

The Sadie Family is a South African winery located in the Swartland wine region. It is owned by Eben Sadie, an intrepid winemaker who is gaining a reputation in the country, and they work with the natural characteristics of the grape and the qualities of the terroir. This is not the only project Sadie is involved in, he is also part of other initiatives like Sequillo Cellars in South Africa and Terroir al Límit in Priorat (Spain).

The Sadie Family Skerpioen is a mixture of the Chenin Blanc and Palomino varieties from old vines aged over 65 years old and planted in clay and calcareous soils. These grapes grow 2 km from the Atlantic Ocean and enjoy a sea breeze that contrasts the dry climate. The work in the vineyard is organic and carried out without using chemical additives that can impair the natural balance of the terroir. The harvest is manual at the optimum point of ripeness.

When the Sadie Family Skerpioen grape reaches the winery, the two varieties are pressed together and the resulting must ferments spontaneously with native yeasts and without additives in old wooden barrels. Finally, the wine ages in concrete eggs and is bottled without refining or filtering.

The Sadie Family Skerpioen, whose name means scorpion, is a saline and mineral wine created from an unusual mixture of the versatile Chenin Blanc and Spanish Palomino variety. A very limited production little gem.

Tasting notes The Sadie Family Skerpioen

The Sadie Family Skerpioen 2018 is a white wine with aromas of tropical fruits and stone fruits with almond notes and mineral touches. On the palate it is vigorous, salty and dry. A unique wine with a Jerez de Manzanilla profile and a long and stimulating finish.
