This is the Priorat project of South Africa’s top winemaker, the brilliant iconoclast Eben Sadie. It’s both incredible and incredibly hard to find. From 85-year-old, South-facing and incredibly low-yielding vines, Sadie makes just one large barrel or foudre of this!

Only one other store has the stunning 2014, at $75. Three have the 2015, at up to $94.99.

The Wine Advocate prices both at $90. Here’s what they say about the 2015:

The 2015 Dits del Terra has a beautiful nose that is very elegant and perfumed, with floral aromas and a clear mineral note from early on. This is a slightly warmer vineyard (the one originally worked by Eben Sadie); but the balance is amazing here, and there is no heat. The foudres are also a little older—six years old—and therefore are quite neutral, and the wines age nicely in them. The quality and refinement of the tannins is surprising—they provide for a velvety texture, and there is a liveliness on the palate that only the best wines can achieve, especially with a rustic grape grown in a rustic place and in a warm vineyard. In this 2015, the Cariñena is just as fresh (maybe even fresher!) as it is in the Arbossar. Bravo! At the end of the day, both showed a similar quality level.

What incredible wines these are!
