Sadie Family Palladius 2019 (On Allocation)

Sadie Family Palladius 2019 (On Allocation)

The new Palladius is the result of 24 months of ageing as opposed to the more traditional 16 – 18 months. We found that the very special sites and fruit were quite up to a complete 24 month ageing prior to bottling.
The additional 6 months of ageing just meant higher levels of stability and clarity without the sacrifice of any of the other qualities and the character of the wine. The 2011 Palladius is the most complex, tightly packed and composed version and will be a great journey for anyone to savour. It was our smallest production in years and we also delayed the release for one year as we felt the new way of ageing was the right direction for this vintage and for future releases.
