Sadie Family Old Vine Series 'Skurfberg' Chenin Blanc, Olifantsrivier, South Africa 2016

Eben Sadie's own note: "This is possibly, to date, one of the vintages which showed the greatest equilibrium from the outset: from the completion of fermentation to being bottled. The vineyard displays its usual stone fruit aromas; and again a minerality and granular tannins with a line of acidity that just bind everything together. We are confident that this Skurfberg will age well and we do suggest decanting during the first 5 years."

Press review:

Jancis Robinson: "Smoky nose – the most reductive I have so far encountered in this tasting. Rich underneath with fabulous tension. What’s not to like? Creamy texture. 14.5% alc. Drink 2017-2024" 17 points

Decanter (Tim Atkin MW): “Made with fruit from three farms on the slopes of the Skurfberg, this is one of only two pure Chenins in Eben Sadie’s Old Vine Series. Naturally fermented in old wood, it has white flower aromas, notes of pastry and citrus, with mineral-edged intensity that builds on the palate.” 97 points
