The Sadie Family 2005 Columella is an extraordinary wine from one of the most renowned producers in South Africa, Eben Sadie. Following an impressive legacy of 90+ scores since the inaugural 2000 vintage, Sadie calls the 2005 “one of the best wines yet.” Wine Spectator says this wine “Offers a stunning array of blue and black fruit – blackberry, boysenberry, blueberry and currant – that is pure, driven and refined, with licorice, sweet spice, vanilla, mineral and sanguine notes flittering throughout. Despite its concentration, this is remarkably elegant, with superb length and a seamless finish. Welcome to the majors, South Africa.” Eben Sadie is also honored as the first South African producer to earn a classic rating (95-100 points) from Wine Spectator. This wine is blessed with alluring, captivating fruit, plenty of length and stunning concentration.
