Over the past 5 years Palladius has been the wine that has grown most in quality and refinement and much of this has to do with the addition of more vineyards and the improvement of their viticulture. Of all our wines the Palladius, with 17 vineyards, currently represents the biggest canvas of the Swartland.

Sadie Family Palladius 2007 Magnum


Paardeberg, Swartland

Winemaking and Maturation

The grapes are picked across a great many vineyards and taken into our cold-room on arrival at the cellar. The next day the grapes are sorted and the whole bunches go into the press. The pressing lasts 2 – 3 hours and in that period a margin of settling of the juice takes place in the collecting tank. The turbid juice is then transferred to concrete eggs of 725 litres and 600 litre French oak.

The Palladius matures in these vessels for 12 months and is then racked off into big old foudres for an additional 12 months ageing prior to bottling. After two years the wine is bottled unfined and unfiltered.

Tasting Notes

This one is seriously packed and dense at 14.4% alcohol with an acidity that beams at you.
