Tasting notes:
'Spontaneously fermented and matured for some 11 months in barrel, 40% new, the nose shows yellow peach, honeysuckle and hay while the palate is particularly dense and full (alcohol is 13.8%) but equally very much in focus, the finish possessing a tonic-water sort of bitterness which suits it well.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 93/100

'From highest, steepest vineyard on farm. Golden glint eye-catching on 2019; aromatically ripe, intense but still underplayed; palate stately & viscous with twist of chenin freshening bite in finish. Begs for time. Natural ferment, oak 60% new, 11 months.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (92/100)

'A cerebral experience, the wine is initially timid on the nose, but soon explodes kaleidoscopically in the back of the brain. Delicate apricot, yellow pear and cut straw aromas are fabulously supported by denser greengage, crushed cumin, raw almond and wild celery. The palate is luxurious and full, with a chalky dryness and vast savoury spectrum. Its mineral freshness showcases honeyed tangerine, roasted corn, ripe quince and sweet cashew. Savoury notes include freshly minced bay leaf and fine ground nutmeg.' – Winemaker

Alc: 13.8% | RS: 4.4 g/L | TA: 5.3 g/L | PH: 3.6
