Eben Sadie's Comments

"Tinta Barocca is the grape with the official passport for being a resident of the Swartland: it has been here for a long time and will remain, since it has an amazing ability to capture the Swartland terroir. Unlike some of the other varieties that enjoy greater familiarity in terms of South African wine preferences, it is a bit of an outsider…. which it really should not be. It is always a deeper wine with much more time required in ageing.

This vintage is dark, black graphitic with anise and just massive earthy notes like freshly ploughed earth. It then trickles into the fruit aromas, but is austere from the outset and needs time in the glass. The tannins, as always, are firm and at 13.2 % alcohol it is just like a person who seems to be a lightweight, but who has a massive punch!

Please age or decant."
