Tasting Notes

Eben Sadie, Winemaker: "The 2014 Columella is a great follow-up on the 2013: the regional character of the Swartland married a sophisticated feel on the mouth. The 12 months in barrels with about 5 - 8% new wood, followed by 12 months of aging with no new wood in old, large format casks have placed the Columella in an environment where the wine is much more compact - and although it develops more slowly, it has a smooth mouthfeel. From 2010 harvest onwards the Columella wines need more time in their youth, or else decantation for at least 2 hours if opened prior to 5 years of age. The texture and mouthfeel are seamless."


Press Note:

"Eben Sadie’s signature series red that is Columella grows ever more sophisticated, the recently released 2014 a blend of 60% Syrah, 22% Grenache, 15% Mourvedre with the remainder being Cinsaut, Tinta Barocca and Carignan." 94 points, Winemag ZA ''We are very proud of this wine,' says Eben Sadie, and rightly so. The Syrah component of this iconic wine has decreased every year and now stands at 50%, complemented by Mourvèdre, Grenache, Cinsault and Tinta Barocca. It’s a very nuanced, elegant wine, with subtle bramble and blackberry fruit, stony minerality, nuanced oak and undertones of aromatic fynbos. Drink: 2016-24.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2016
