Notes

'I reviewed this wine last year, but have included it again as it’s got even better with 12 additional months in bottle. It’s an almost Burgundian take on Chenin Blanc: leesy, smoky and complex, with a salty tang that wouldn’t look out of place in the Jura. An intriguing, old vine white. Drink: 2016-19.‘ – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2016

'Ian Naudé blends fruit from Elgin, Paarl and Darling here in a dry style that has the ageing potential that characterises his wines. Apple pie, some struck match, creamy oak and a core of taut acidity, this is very fresh and long on the palate. Drink: 2015-20' – Tim Atkin

'From three vineyards, two in Riebeek Kasteel vineyards and one in Stellenbosch, ranging from 35 to 55 years in age. Also known as ‘Steen’, the Chenin grapes from these 30- to 50-year-old vineyards revealed even more quality and intensity than we could have hoped for, proving that age eliminates the need for blending to achieve a high quality and intense white wine in a classic style.' – Christian Eedes
