9 cases
Equiv. £77.50 per bottle

Tasting Note:

David Sadie is rightly regarded as one of the pre-eminent Grenache producers in South Africa, always shooting for a pared-back, highly perfumed, mineral and acidity-driven style. The ‘Veiling’ (auction) Grenache comes from a single vineyard in the Langkloof of the Paardeberg mountain in the Swartland. Crushed cherries, raspberry and strawberry with touches of star anise, blueberries and stones. Fermented with 50% whole bunches and raised in neutral French oak barrels for a year. 13% alcohol. Just 38 cases were submitted to the auction.

The 2021 Veiling Grenache Noir bursts with bright-red crunchy fruit aromas of fresh raspberry, cherry skin and wild strawberry before elements of Christmas spice and potpourri waft on the nose. Medium-bodied, the palate is focused and fresh and offers succulent acidity with a delicate mineral tension and phenolic grip. It’s a cerebral wine that is playful, food-friendly and mineral-laced. Bravo, this is gorgeous Grenache!92 Points, Anthony Mueller.
