Eben Sadie Soldaat 2021

13% abv

Vol- 75cl

“The 2021 Soldaat, which includes 40% whole cluster, is markedly pale in colour, yet Sadie mentioned this wine actually contains a lot of tannin. It has a beguiling, very distinctive red cherry and redcurrant nose, a noticeable reduction (Sadie also mentioned that this Soldaat had been bottled with a lot of carbonic gas). The palate is medium-bodied with fine grain tannins, very transparent with a touch of sage and white pepper. Vibrant and poised on the brittle finish, it delivers quite a stony aftertaste. Startling purity here – magnificent.” 2023 -2045
95 Points, Neal Martin, Vinous, August 2022

Winemaker and viticulturist Eben Sadie starts as he means to go on. Having spent eight years “roaming the world in search of answers” the Sadie Family project kicked off in 1999 and, its first wine, the Syrah-based Columella 2000, was awarded 5 stars in the Platter Guide.

All the wines are made with grapes sourced from the Swartland whose expanse of wheat fields account for its traditional reputation as the Cape’s “bread basket.” However, Sadie has been at the forefront of a revolution which has seen the region develop a cult following for its Syrah and Mediterranean blends. At the heart of Sadie’s success is the identification of fine vineyards with a diversity of soil, aspect and meso-climate. The Sadie family fully control seven leased vineyard parcels spread across the Swartland district, mostly planted with Syrah, with a tiny parcel of Mourvèdre.

Future plans include moving towards biodynamic farming. Eben has bought a horse and is designing a plough suitable for both mule and man to allow him to work the soils more gently. As for the winemaking, a 50 tonne cellar is under construction at Paardeberg in Swartland.
