Palladius White Blend '21

Sadie Family Wines
Regular price
Tax included.

You know it's an extraordinary wine when the winemaker himself thinks it's the best wine of the vintage and even more so when that winemaker is the world renowned Eben Sadie. 

Palladius gets its bigplayer mentality from the staggering 11 different Mediterranean white varieties harvested from 17 vineyard parcels scattered across the Swartland canvas. The grapes are whole bunch pressed to concrete eggs to ferment, blended after 12 months and then aged for another year in two old wooden foudres before being bottled unfined and unfiltered.

Palladius delivers big lemongrass, lemon zest and fresh tropical notes. It's complex, textured, composed and beyond exceptional - especially so when aged for a minimum of 4-6yrs.
