Sadie Family Kokerboom 2021
“Yields were ridiculously low in 2020, but Henk Laing's field blend of Semillon Blanc and Semillon Gris always seems to cope with what the vintage throws at it. Exotic, perfumed and intense, with nectarine and passion fruit flavours, old vine concentration, subtle tannins and an undertow of acidity.”
96 points, Tim Atkin MW, South Africa Special Report 2021
“Here we find the purity of fresh fruit flavors and mineral qualities with some waxy aromas with lime, green apple and riper pear aromatics on the edge of the expression. The acidity and tannin balance is possibly one of the best of equilibriums we have had in this wine in years. The fermentation again took 8 months and the freshness of the bottled wine is remarkable. Unfortunately, the quantities are the problem and our best advice is to share the wine with others!”
Winemaker, Eben Sadie.
