‘Consistently the best Riesling in SA’ – Tim Atkin on the 2017 Spioenkop

Koen Roose’s single-minded, terroir-driven approach encapsulates the passion that will redefine the Cape wine industry. His decade-long quest is finally paying off with his limited Spioenkop range of wines – each is a 95-point benchmark in its class.

The two that best capture this spirit are the Spioenkop 2017 Riesling and 2018 Pinotage. The Riesling is, without a doubt, SA’s finest as noted by Tim Atkin MW, whilst the Pinotage, which scored 95/100 from Christian Eedes, impresses with its marvellous sense of refinement and restraint. An inspiring set of wines!

Koen’s two highly-rated Chenin Blancs are also well worth seeking out. Of the two, the 2018 Spioenkop Sarah Raal is more defined and linear, while the 2017 Johanna Brandt is fuller and more textured. These wines speak of the clear, distilled vision of Spioenkop.
