Disdit 2020 & Tesame 2019 Pre-release by Wine Cellar
'97-point Anysbos Disdit 2020 - A thing of beauty' – Wine Cellar
Joining the stellar Anysbos 2020 Disdit white is the maiden-release 2019 Tesame. It's a unique red that is full of character and finely balanced between freshness and structure. This blend of 43% Grenache, 43% Shiraz and Cinsault is properly dry with great energy and mineral complexity and demands time in the cellar. Sadly, it's made in minute quantities.
The 2020 Anysbos Disdit is possibly my favourite white so far this year! Now established as one of the Cape's finest, this Chenin Blanc-dominated blend, with Roussanne, Grenache Blanc and Marsanne, is bright and fragrant with amazing aromatics. The fynbos notes add complexity to its beguiling and expressive nose, followed by a juicy palate that is wonderfully balanced and quietly powerful – a special wine! Needless to say, these are both small-batch, limited releases.
Owned by Johan and Sue Heyns, Anysbos is situated in Bot River and is jockeyed by the immensely talented Young-Gun winemaker, Marelise Niemann. Together with her own wines, she produces some of the most elegant wines in the Cape. All wines are produced from sustainably farmed vineyards. This is certainly a property to watch!
