The Siebritskloof wines that David and Nadia Sadie make are from vineyards on the Paardebosch farm where they are based. Tasting notes and ratings for the new releases as follows:

David & Nadia Siebritskloof Semillon 2016
Price: R205
From two vineyards, one planted in 1960 and the other in 1972. The nose shows pronounced reduction plus vague notes of citrus and herbs. The palate, meanwhile, is tight and ungiving with a particularly grippy quality thanks to some skin contact. It’s a particular wine – striking but difficult to like.

Editor’s rating: 90/100.

David & Nadia Siebritskloof Pinotage 2016

Front runner.

David & Nadia Siebritskloof Pinotage 2016
Price: R205
From vineyards planted in the 1990s. Cherry and bramble fruit, earth and other hard-to-describe savoury notes. Weightless intensity, soft but sufficient acidity and lovely ripe tannins. Spicy and long on the finish. This vintage has a bit more grunt than the prettier 2015 but still masterfully done. Such a great advertisement for the variety.

Editor’s rating: 95/100.
