Tasting notes:
'Spontaneous fermentation followed by maturation lasting 16 months in 300- and 500-litre barrels. Aromatics of blackcurrant, lime and lemon, peach, the merest hint of hay plus some waxy complexity. The palate has very good depth of fruit and well-integrated acidity – rich, broad and pleasantly smooth textured, it shows both balance and detail.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 93/100

'Yes, it was at the end of the drought, but we got the benefit of a cool climate,' says Trizanne Barnard of this Elim Semillon, now in its second vintage. Savoury, poised and herbal, with lovely lees, some wild yeast complexity, a whiff of the ocean and pithy, mouth-watering focus. Drink 2020-24.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2019, 93/100

'Rich aromatics and citrus, peach, winter melon, honeysuckle and warm oak spices. This intensity is continued on the palate with integrated flavours of fruit, spice and minerality; it is luxurious yet finely detailed. The elegance of the savoury finish is noticeable as the flavours very slowly fade.' – Winemaker
