Eben Sadie Columella Swartland 2003
"This just gushes with exotic fruit--raspberry, boysenberry and fig--whilestaying juicy and vibrant thanks to the tangy mineral spine. Plenty of sweetspice notes also add dimension to the finish, which is rich and youthful. Syrahand MourvÃ¨dre. Drink now through 2011." (Wine Spectator- Web only edition,2007)
