About The Wine

The Columella is the stunning flagship red blend from Eben Sadie.

Blended from multiple varieties grown on multiple vineyards located all over the region, Columella is designed to encapsulate the very essence of Swartland in a particular vintage. Shiraz leads the dance with Mourvèdre, Grenache, Carignan, Tinta Barocca and Cinsault all contributing in differing amounts.

It's a wine of immense stature and desirability amongst collectors of South Africa's rarest fine wines. It's one of the country's most recognisable labels and a beacon of quality that proclaims the world-class quality of the New Wave South Africa.

About Sadie Family Wines

One of the tearaway producers of the revitalised Swartland wine scene, Sadie Family Wines has had an astronomical rise to fame on the international stage.

Owner and winemaker, Eben Sadie, first found acclaim under the banner of Terroir Al Limit where he was a co-founder alongside Dominik Huber. In the same way that Terroir Al Limit helped redefine what wine could taste like from Priorat in Spain, Sadie handles his family wines and vines with that same ruthless attention to detail.

These wines perfectly articulate a sense of place. Sadie's transparency in winemaking and obsessive farming practices reveal intense, tightly-wound wines with distinct personality. These are now some of South Africa's most keenly sought-after artisan wines. World-wide allocations are minuscule and hotly contested. As little as a handful of bottles make it to Australia each year. Secure these rare birds while you can.

From The Producer

“This vintage has taken on many dimensions, interpretations and responses to the very terroir we farm for this wine. The 2019 is as harmonious as any wine can hope to be at this stage in its life. The wine exhibits finely trimmed perfumes and violet notes, bright fruit with spicy characteristics that immediately spill over into some of the most refined tannins we could capture at this point. Columella 2019 is a play of dual sides in that it has retained all the potential fruit one can hope for in a wine doing a 24-month cask ageing, but much of the primary fruit and textured grippy tannins are all at play at the same time. The 2019 can easily rival the 2015 in terms of breaking new ground. We have captured dimensions with the wine we have not seen to date.” Eben Sadie

FaQs

Do I have to order in dozens? No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.

Can I special order a wine you do not sell? If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
