About David & Nadia

Named Tim Atkin’s “Young Winemakers of the Year” in 2020, David & Nadia Sadie are quickly emerging as “a force to be reckoned with” in South Africa according to Jancis Robinson MW. Having started the family winery as recently as 2016, the husband and wife team have already forged what is undoubtedly "part of an elite group of South African Chenin Blanc producers" (Tim Atkin MW).

Intrigued and excited by Swartland’s enviable stock of old vines, David & Nadia work relentlessly on their labour of love to restore these low-yielding old vineyards. Not content with just that, however, they have also established new vineyards planted primarily with Grenache and Chenin Blanc. Keeping to strictly low-interventionist winemaking processes, their thoughtful and sensitive approach gives rise to light wines with lifted fruits, freshness and attractive aromas.

David & Nadia Aristargos 2020 (6x75cl)

Tim Atkin MW (93)

Seventeen vineyards, 25 pickings and no co-fermentation" says David Sadie of this tasty, complex cuvée of Chenin Blanc with 51% Roussanne, Semillon, Marsanne, Clairette, Viognier, Verdelho, Grenache Blanc and Colombard. Perfumed, focused and textured for a white with just 12.5% alcohol, it's waxy, subtle and nuanced, with citrus, apple and nectarine flavours and very little oak. 2021-26

David & Nadia Elpidios 2019 (6x75cl)

Tim Atkin MW (94)

Made in the last of the so-called drought vintages, this stylish red assemblage has been Grenache-led since 2017, with 62% Syrah, Pinotage, Carignan and Cinsault completing the picture. Grippy, firm and stony, with 50% whole bunch spices, a waft of rose petal and tangy red cherry, plum and redcurrant fruit. 2022-28

David & Nadia Hoe Steen Chenin Blanc 2019 (6x75cl)

Tim Atkin MW (96)

One of a trio of world-class single site Chenin Blancs from David and Nadie Sadie (no relation to Eben, by the way), this hails from a two-hectare vineyard that was planted in 1968 and is often picked late. Completing full malolactic - such is the acidity in the grapes - this is leesy, focused and taut, with some ferrous grip and a textured palate. 2021-29

David & Nadia Hoe Steen Chenin Blanc 2020 (6x75cl)

Tim Atkin MW (96)

Hoë-Steen comes from a 1968 vineyard to the west of Malmesbury on deep red iron and clay-rich soils. Broader and richer than the other single site Chenins from the Sadies, with some ferrous grip, fine oak integration, pear, cream and stone fruit flavours and a taut finish.

David & Nadia Plat'bos Chenin Blanc 2019 (6x75cl)

Tim Atkin MW (98)

David & Nadia Sadie are now part of an elite group of South African Chenin Blanc producers, making world-class wines on a consistent basis. This is my favourite of their trio of single vineyard wines in 2019, sourced from a 3.9-hectare site on granite soils on the Paardeberg. Tight, taut and floral, with comparatively low alcohol, mouth-watering freshness, precision and acidity, notes of fennel, apple and gunflint and a lingering finish. A Cape Grand Cru. 2021-32

David & Nadia Plat'bos Chenin Blanc 2020 (6x75cl)

Tim Atkin MW (98)

One of the great whites of the southern hemisphere, not just of South Africa, this is the Montrachet of Chenin Blanc. Made with three different pickings from the top part of the Paardebosch farm, it has the concentration of its 40-year-old vines, mouth-watering acidity and pH, chiselled freshness and layers of rock salt, aromatic spices, pear and lemongrass.

David & Nadia Swartland Chenin Blanc 2020 (6x75cl)

Tim Atkin MW (94)

This is "just" the basic Chenin Blanc from David and Nadia Sadie, but it's better than many people's top wine. Made with fruit from seven vineyards, four of them on decomposed granite, this is a classy, understated white with negligible oak, layered citrus and beeswax flavours, a hint of aniseed and stony grip. 2022-28
