Professional Wine Reviews for Sadie Family Treinspoor 2013

Rated 93 by Robert Parker
The 2013 Old Vine Series Treinspoor comes from Tinta Barocca planted in 1974. It has a deep lucid purple/cherry color. The nose is very harmonious with raspberry, redcurrant, wilted rose-petals scents and a touch of quince that gently unfolds but remains demure. The palate is very harmonious with slightly chewy tannins, nigh perfect acidity and wonderful definition and minerality toward the finish that has more backbone that I anticipated. Excellent.

Additional Information on Sadie Family Treinspoor 2013

Winery: Sadie Family

Region: Coastal Region

The coastal parts of South Africa, and in particular the region around Cape Town, have been important wine regions for a surprising length of time. Indeed, viticulture first began at the tip of the African continent back in the mid 17th century, when European settlers first began experimenting with the cooler and windier terroirs near the ocean, and recognizing the potential the area had for growing grapes of real character and distinction. Those early experiments slowly but surely led to a powerful wine industry, and South African wines became famous throughout Europe for their quality and big, fruity, bold flavors Today, the coastal regions of South Africa produce a huge amount of wine, made in sparkling, still and fortified styles, and utilizing a wide range of grape varietals.

Country: South Africa

Perhaps the most famous and well respected of all the wine regions in South Africa is that of Constantia, which holds many of the oldest and most traditional wineries in the country. Here, the temperate climate receives the Atlantic winds which cool the vineyards, and the fertile soil allows the grapes to grow to full ripeness, resulting in highly flavorful wines which are enjoyed around the world. Whilst Sauvignon Blanc varietals make up the most widely exported wines of this region, the rest of the country produces a huge and impressive range of wines, made up from varietals native to many different European countries. From excellent Champagne style sparkling wines, to aromatic fortified examples, fruity reds and refreshing whites, South Africa continues to impress and surprise, with modern techniques and technologies leading the way and producing exceptional results.
