Eben Sadie Sequillo Red 2005
Eben Sadie has a reputation as the 'enfant terrible' of South African wine. He started off his wine-making career at Charles Back's Spice Route winery, and set up his own vineyard over 10 years ago. Decanter says "Alluring and inviting Rhone blend from Sadie Family Vineyards. It's spicy and figgy, with real personality, and the odd whiff of violets plus purple fruit on the nose. Despite its slightly wild character, it's poised and direct, with focused, pure fruit running throughout."
The Sadie Family is a South African producer of wine located in the Swartland region. Following the emergence of flagship wines Columella and Palladius, winemaker Eben Sadie is South Africa's first certified celebrity winemaker. The Sadie Family has enjoyed success beyond any other modern South African wine producer as Columella is the most highly rated South African wine, and the only to achieve a 95 point rating by US wine magazine Wine Spectator.
