This chunky boy sits very much in the style of new-world Rhone blends that we adore. All of the black pepper spice and earth, with lovely unctuous, ripe & rich new world fruits - think blackcurrants, cherry, cassis. The wine has a lovely warm, fuzzy decadent feel with gorgeously soft tannins, just drying to be enjoyed with a fat steak.
The wine is a blend of 57% Shiraz, 20% Mourvédre, 18% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Grenache Noir. The vintage was in barrel for 18 months with 40% new French Oak.
Saboteur is the ‘other’ label of Niels Verburg of Luddite Wines, generally considered the pied piper of creative winemaking from this region. As the name and bottle implies, his approach is very much the ‘hands-off’ or ‘low intervention’ style, but his wines are precise, clean, expressive and are in no way overtly funky or natural. As the bottle reads "Technology & mechanisation will never be a substitute for passion".
