Sadie Family Wines 'Mev Kirsten'
The 2021 Mev. Kirsten displays fresh fruit aromas that migrate into riper apricot and slightly tropical notes; however, the bulk of the wine’s aromatics lean on the fresh and bright aspects of the fruit. The aromas are very soft-spoken, and the wine is still just settling into the bottle. The tannins are incredibly refined, and the wine’s weight seems suspended; there is every suggestion that it will become a very classical vintage for this vineyard. Tasted over four days and the slow development and move of the aromas suggest that this wine is genuinely in need of a dark cellar for a long time. Decantation helps but can never replace the actual effect of time. Eben Sadie.
