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.
