2015 SABOTEUR RED, Luddite. Bot River, South Africa

Bin:  605

Alcohol percentage:  14.5%

Area:

This is from 3 vineyard sites in Bot River (a relatively new cool climate region, on the edge of Elgin, and where Luddite are based).

Grape variety:

77% Shiraz, 11% Mourvédre and 9% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Cabernet Franc; matured in French oak for a year (50% new wood).

Producer:

Saboteur is the ‘other’ label of Niels Verburg who was winemaker at nearby Beaumont and Iona before setting up Luddite wines. As the names imply his approach is ‘hands-off’ or ‘low intervention’ but his wines are not ‘funky’ and ‘natural’; they are innovative and expressive, but super clean and fine.

Old Bridge rating:

A serious, rather savoury red compared to others in our ‘powerful’ section. Needs food, but this has beautiful richness and (of course) great packaging.
