Sadie Family Columella 2020 is made from a blend of Syrah, Mourvèdre, Grenache, Carignan, Cinsaut and Tinta Barocca grape varietals. Hand sorting of individual berries of the entire production in small “strawberry” cases. Fermentation takes place spontaneously in 3,300-litre open concrete fermenters for about three weeks at a temperature of 24°C and is then followed by a post-fermentation maceration of another three weeks. No additions are made to the fermenting wine. Pressing takes place in a traditional basket press and the wine is transferred to the barrel (5% new) for malolactic fermentation.  The wine spends 12 months on the lees in tight-grain French oak barrels, just 5% of them new, and is then racked into big oval casks (foudres) for an additional year of maturation on the fine lees. After two years the wine is bottled, unfined and unfiltered. Bottled at 13.5%. (Bottle size 750ml)

Nose: The 2020 Columella displays significantly lifted bright red crushed fruit that follows through to some darker blueberry aromas.

Palate: On the palate, the wine is extremely finely knitted together and the tannin is almost seamless.

Finish: The wine finishes powder dry with even more refined tannins in the aftertaste.
