Description
 
Husband and wife team David and Nadia Sadie have quickly made a name for themselves with superb, natural and honest wines true to the Swartland. David gained experience both locally (Waterford, Rustenberg and Saronsberg) and internationally (South Pacific Cellars – New Zealand, Chateau Quinault – France, Yves Quilleron – France). His wines are now rated as some of the best in South Africa by influential international and local wine critics.

2017 is the first vintage of Aristargos to include Marsanne (planted in 2013). The full blend is Chenin Blanc (58%), Viognier (14%), Clairette (13%), Sémillon (7%), Roussanne (5%) and Marsanne (3%), from 14 vineyards. It was a tough year, especially as David & Nadia avoid irrigating the bush vines and practise sustainable methods. But the result is stunning: a honeyed, floral nose leads to a pithy palate with notes of lemon, grapefruit, apple and vinyl. It's definitely a juicier style than previous vintages, with some delicious nectarine sweetness coming through on the mid-palate, yet it's dry and structured thanks to the old wood . It's all cut through by fresh acidity and an amazingly saline, citrus driven finish that lasts and lasts” Decanter 95
