Eben Sadie started his winemaking career working for Charles Back’s Spice Route-labelled wines before breaking out on his own in 1999. Over the past decade he has acquired the reputation as the most innovative and inspired winemaker in South Africa. He is a great believer in blends, rather than single varietal wines, and in terroir. Columella (Syrah and Mourvèdre) is one of South Africa's very best wines, if not the best, named after one of the wine trade's earliest scribes. It sees 24 months in oak and is racked every six months. Eben's white wine, Palladius, is arguably more impressive still; it is a delicious blend of 60-plus year-old bush vine Chenin Blanc and Viognier. These are incredible wines from a winemaker at the top of his game.
