Wine is all about natural balance, purity and freshness. David and Nadia believe that these qualities can only be rightfully expressed when the soil and vineyards are respected. They work with various vineyards and like-minded farmers in the Swartland that share their vision.
Their focus is on different soil types, different mountain terrain and mainly bush vines. In the cellar they have a minimal intervention approach and only add a little sulphur. It’s about the soil and vineyards after all.
David was born and bred in the Swartland and studied Viticulture and Oenology at the University of Stellenbosch. It was here that he met and later married Nadia, a qualified soil scientist and viticulturist.
Grapes used from the whole of Swartland representing its soils, vineyards and people.
David & Nadia Chenin Blanc 2016
From six different vineyards ranging from 39 to 45 years old. Pear, peach, floral fragrance and some gravel road dustiness on the nose. Concentrated fruit and fresh acidity. Lovely presence and poise. Seamlessly assembled.
Cultivar: 100% Chenin Blanc
David & Nadia Aristargos 2017
An amazingly complex nose of citrus, white and yellow peach, potpourri, scrub, earth and marzipan. Rich but seamless and wonderfully balanced. This is luxuriant drinking – there’s plenty of weight but also fresh acidity. Succulent upfront but the overall impression is dry. Great depth and length.
Cultivar: 58% Chenin Blanc, 14% Viognier, 13% Clairette Blanche, 7% Semillon, 5% Roussanne, 3% Marsanne
David & Nadia Elpidios 2016
Matured for 20 months in old 500-liter barrels, it has a composed bouquet with raspberry, cranberry leaf and light lavender scents. It is very floral. The palate is very well balanced with fine tannin, an open-knit and generous blend that expresses harmony and refinement on the finish, a saline tang lingering on the aftertaste.
Cultivar: 34% Carignan, 33% Syrah, 14% Pinotage, 14% Cinsault, 5% Grenache,
Only grapes used from the Siebritskloof of the Paardeberg where David & Nadia is based.
David & Nadia Siebritskloof Pinotage 2018
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.
Cultivar: 100% Pinotage
