Tasting Notes

Rare wine alert! Thief in the Night is a beautifully perfumed Grenache based blend from the best Grenache country, Piekenierskloof. It's from the very same vineyard as Eben Sadie's Soldaat! With stunning perfume and purity, there's just a little more depth and brooding fruit here than Follow the Line, with some fynbos/garrigue notes, spice and a gentle meatiness too, with fresh acidity and soft tannins. 

More Info

It's been a decade since Duncan Savage released his first wines under his own label. Back then, he was producing Platter 5 Star wine after 5 star wine for the esteemed Cape Point Vineyards, and cementing himself as the Cape's foremost authority on the Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon variety. Fast forward 10 years, and the secret is certainly out about Duncan's talent. Throughout his time at Cape Point, Duncan grew to understand coastal sites, and has continued to seek out maritime and high elevation sites across the Western Cape which he explores through his range of highly sought-after wines. A keen surfer and CWG member, demand always exceeds supply of his exceptional wines.

FROM THE PRESS

“This 2020 shows a delightful autumnal aromatic profile of forest undergrowth, savoury frais de bois, tilled earth, grilled Provencal herbs and subtle shades of summer garrigue. On the palate, the wine shows plenty of textural detail, fine silky caressing tannins and harmonious fresh acids. The red and black berry fruits are earthy but impressively pure and precise, finishing with notes of bramble berries, pomegranates and sappy spice. There is a real confidence to the wine and a strong sense of terroir accentuated by Duncan’s deft winemaking acumen. Rhone lovers are going to love this release. Drink now and over 6 to 8+ years. 94 points.”
