The B Vintners Liberté 2018 was named Best Pinotage in the Winemag Prescient Top 20 Wines South Africa 2020 Report.

Tasting notes:
'20% whole-bunch fermentation before maturation lasting 18 months in older French oak. An enticing nose with notes of red currant, cherry, pomegranate and musk. The palate is light-bodied and energetic – pure fruit, fresh acidity and crunchy tannins. This is precisely made, being wonderfully clean and linear.' – Winemag Prescient Top 20 Wines South Africa 2020 Report, 94/100

'Elegance triumphs over muscle in perfumed, subtle 2018, expressing varietal charm with lithe body, vibrant & spicy red fruit, restrained tannin structure. 16 months in mostly older 300L barrels, like 2017 (93 pts), allows fruit to take centre stage.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (94/100)

'Cousins, Bruwer Raats and Gavin Slabbert, make this Pinotage like a top Pinot Noir, with evident whole bunch notes, subtle wood and fine textured tannins, wrapped around a core of raspberry and pomegranate fruit. Drink 2021-26.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2020, 93/100
