Sadie Family ‘T Voetpad Field Blend 2018

Vineyards

North-western side of the Piquetberg Mountains

Winemaking and Maturation

The vineyard’s survival without irrigation is also extraordinary in this hot valley in the north of the huge Swartland region, near the village of Aurora and Elands Bay on the coast. Its precise location has allowed it to survive, with an underground river flowing beneath it from the mountains. No herbicides have been used, and grass and weeds between the vines help dry out the winter-wet soils, while driving the vine roots deeper. It is a special and unique place, producing wines of great character.

’T Voetpad is a field blend of all the varieties – they are picked and pressed together, and co-fermented in old wooden casks.

Tasting Notes

This ‘T Voetpad is incredibly expressive, and the usual waxy and lanolin aromatics are to be found, but the cordial limey aromatics, dried straw bales, and a dash of melon are concentrated aspects. The palate has a lingering aftertaste, is incredibly restrained, and the wine is light on its feet. The tannins are restrained, and the acidity is very soft on the finish. It is one of this vineyard’s most elegant and refined versions. We also had to pick slightly earlier due to the looming heat waves. The wine is just a Mindbender this year.
