'The currently available 2020 has subtle aromatics of pear, lime, fynbos, sea breeze and black currant while the palate is lean and fresh with a pithy finish. As ever, it’s a restrained rendition of the variety that will benefit from some bottle maturation – Ross also presented a vertical from 2015 to 2020 and both the 2017 and 2019 have gained by virtue of some ageing.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 90/100

'Made in a way ensuring the personality of site and soil is not over-ridden by the forceful character of the variety, this wine exhibits the typical Southern Right balance of "Old World" minerality and length with hints of "New World" palate coverage and body. The 2020 is a wine that favours origin expressive individuality, minerality and palate complexity ahead of pure, pungent varietal aroma. A significant percentage of fruit from iron and clay-rich soil has added a mid-palate structural component and additional overall complexity to this wine. The Sandstone soils have contributed their typical bright, tensile character and a marked minerality.' – Emul Ross, Winemaker
