The Sadie Family Wines

Eben Sadie har arbejdet blandt verdens bedste vinmagere på næsten alle kontinenter. I dag fokuserer han primært på sit hjemland, Sydafrika, hvor han tager vinproduktionen tilbage til et absolut minimum, hvor der ikke manipuleres med terroir og smagsnuancer. Hvis du passer godt nok på din mark, din jord og biodiversitet, får du i følge Sadie også god frugt, som skal have lov at komme til sin i vinen og ikke kvæles af overdreven ekstraktion eller fadlagring.

Når Sadie ikke laver vin eller surfer, bruger han de fleste af sine penge på at købe vin fra resten af verden. Denne nysgerrighed har bl.a. ført ham til at lave vin i Priorat, men sjælen vil altid ligge i hans hjem i Swartland og vinene derfra.

Her har du hans drivkraft og filosfi indkapslet med hans egne ord:

"We live in an ever more globalized world where wine permutated to become more alike daily. Within this the notion of terroir is to be lost forever. Wine more than any other produce of agriculture has a specific notion of origin, hence every wine in the world having a "appellation" status. Our goal and aim is for our wines to display the true character of our soils and the vintage factor within any year. This entitles the development of a define sensitivity for the area and the grapes, the biggest notion is to let things go go at time and to rather become an observer and preserver than a "maker". The notion of sense of place is what wines are about and the reason they have fascinated mankind since the very inception."

Indehaver af "Robert Parker Green Emblem 2021" for vinhuse, der arbejder i pagt med naturen men som ikke bruger tid på certificeringer:
"Sadie Family Wines remains a leader in biodynamic and organic farming in the South African landscape, focusing on old vines, some of which produce excruciatingly low yields, from meticulous managed vineyards. Eben Sadie, owner of Sadie Family Wines, has lived by a simple rule: to interfere with the wine as little as possible, allowing the wine’s natural essence to shine through, proudly displaying the subtleties of the vintage, so that their expressions of terroir and varietal purity may sing true with a sense of time and place."
