Tasting notes:
'Astonishingly layered, complex & harmonious 2012 blend of 8 varieties, led by chenin, rousanne, skilfully matured 2 years on lees in concrete ‘eggs’, older casks & barrels. Intense flavours, lemon, herbs, even some florality & white pepper spice, all sewn together by pithy mineral thread.' – Platter's Guide, 5*

'Chenin Blanc, Grenache Blanc, Clairette Blanche, Viognier, Verdelho, Roussanne, Semillon Gris, Semillon Blanc and Palomino. Lime, lemon and peach plus ginger and marzipan and more mysterious notes of dried herbs, hay and earth. Not much point being too literal here – it’s more about texture and length. A cerebral drinking experience but then you’d expect nothing less. It’s speaks of place in a metaphorical sense – the baking sun of the Swartland, buzzards atop telephone poles and not a soul for miles around.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 95/100

'Intense, with ripe, lush layers of creamed Jonagold apple, Cavaillon melon and glazed peach fruit, enlivened by dried chamomile, quinine and bitter citrus oil notes. The long finish flows beautifully, with the fruit and floral elements draped over a well-embedded mineral edge. This has depth and energy, and should cellar well. Chenin Blanc, Roussanne, Grenache Blanc, Sémillon, Sémillon Gris, Palomino, Viognier, Clairette Blanche and Verdelho. Drink now through 2022.' – James Molesworth, Wine Spectator, 94/100
