THE SADIE FAMILY SKERPIOEN 2017
The name of the wine means scorpion. It is a blend of Chenin Blanc and Palomino coming from a non-irrigated 77-year-old vineyard and trained in Gobelet. Planted on sand over a substratum of chalk, the vineyard is located in northwest Swartland. The wine is made in concrete egg vessels and is only produced in a very small quantity. (About 350 cases).
An unusual blend, the Palomino is a grape variety from Andalusia in Spain. It is salty, mineral with aromas and flavours of melon, honey and apricot. It is a bright wine with overtones of orange peel and almond and bees’ wax. Nice aromatic complexity on this wine with a refreshing finish. Unique
