2015 SABOTEUR RED, Luddite. Bot River, South Africa

Bin:  605

Alcohol percentage:  14.5%


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).


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.
