“Om symbolises the concept of universal creation. This word is also synonymous with peace. The vineyard is situated in the Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge region (Heaven and Earth), a beautiful and peaceful place close to my heart. May this wine carry forward the peace that its place of creation inspires. Excellent early ripening conditions turned into wetter conditions close to harvest, which make the picking date all-important. Hand-sorting of the bunches in the vineyard and in the cellar allowed for only optimal fruit to be fermented. The resultant wine from this site is energetic, concentrated and has a great fresh acidity.”

"While the Saurwein Nom and Om cuvees exhibit similar youthful foresty aromatics of savoury red and black berry fruits, bramble berry spice and a roasted cashew nut complexity, it s on the palate that the real brilliance of the Om cuvee is revealed. Utterly vivacious and vibrant, refreshingly tart and fresh, boasting notes of cranberry, red cherries, pomegranates and blood oranges with a beguiling stony mineral tannin seam running through the wine. The wine finishes with hints of espresso, exotic sweet baking spices and a supremely sleek harmonious length. This is a class act, both sophisticated and seamlessly balanced. A new benchmark for Jessica. Bravo! Drink now and over 10-15 years."" (Wine Safari Score: 95/100 Greg Sherwood MW)" [Greg Sherwood, 01/03/2023]
