Winemaker Notes

This old vineyard was planted in 1974 and lies on the western side of Malmesbury, on route to Darling. Historically Tinta Das Baroccas (the earlier pronunciation) has always had a good and prominent place in the Swartland region.

This vineyard is located next to the old railway line (treinspoor) and was named accordingly.

The very fragile, thin skin of Tinta Barocca is prone to sunburn, but in this case the old bush vines have formed a great framework to keep the bunches sheltered from the intense Swartland sun.

The good color and firm acidity of this variety have madeit a great and favorite component in blends from the outset. However, once a Tinta Barocca vineyard has grown into old age, it has all the complexities and qualities to be bottled on its own. Unfined and unfiltered. Decanting recommended.

Critical Acclaim

WS 92
Wine Spectator
Enticing, with black cherry and blackberry fruit racing along, underscored by light brambly grip, hints of dried anise and black tea notes. A sleek iron detail cuts through the finish, leaving a mouthwatering feel. Tinta Barocca. Drink now through 2021.

The Sadie Family strives for wines that are fresh, flavorsome, refined, harmonious and balanced and aims to offer drinking pleasure at the highest level of quality, at any stage of a wine's life: the wine-drinker's eagerness for a further glass is their measure of achievement!

The Sadie's two wines, Columella and Palladius, originate in the soils in the Swartland region, which stretches north of Cape Town between Durbanville and Piketberg, inland from the Atlantic Ocean, and centered on the town of Malmesbury. Importantly, the area has a remarkably stable climate, allowing a consistent level of quality each year, in subtly different vintage conditions.

Literally meaning "the black land," Swartland takes its name from the endangered, indigenous "renosterbos" (translating to rhino bush), which used to be plentiful enough to turn the entire landscape a dark color certain during times of year. The district, attracting some of the most adventurous and least interventionist winemakers, excels in robust and full-bodied reds as well as quality fortified wines.

Beyond the usual suspects, there are hundreds of red grape varieties grown throughout the world. Some are indigenous specialties capable of producing excellent single varietal wines, while others are better suited for use as blending grapes. Each has its own distinct viticultural characteristics, as well as aroma and flavor profiles, offering much to be discovered by the curious wine lover. In particular, Portugal and Italy are known for having a multitude of unique varieties but they can really be found in any region.
