'Loved this with my Sunday roast!' - Lauren Segers
Team Favourite
‘Made from a mixture of young and older vines aged between 5 and 40 years old, after 18 months of elevage with 66% aged on its fine lees, the complex aromatics reveal a rich leesy, savoury yellow fruited nose with pithy white citrus, peach stone, bitter almonds, dried herbs, orange blossom and hints of lemon oil. Rich but not too overtly “fruity”, the palate is plush, harmonious and textural with hints of honeydew melon, lemon pastille, white peach and savoury leesy biscuit hints. Really quite serious, and seriously delicious! Drink now and over the next 8 to 10 years.’ – Greg Sherwood MW, 94/100

‘Mostly a young vineyard Chenin Blanc, grapes from Swartland, Upper Blaauwklippen and Polkadraai Hills plus some older vine parcels from the Paardeberg. Some flinty reduction before pear, peach and citrus as well as some floral perfume on the nose. Good fruit density, well coated acidity and some light grip to the finish. Relatively thick textured (alc: 13.34%) with layers of flavour.’ – Christian Eedes,, 93/100

‘New to the range this year comes the 2022 Hereafter Here made from 100% Chenin Blanc. The nose is zesty, bright and fresh, with notes of lemon oil and dusty citrus blossom. Medium-bodied and with 13% alcohol, the palate offers energetic acidity with a succulent mineral tension before displaying a kiss of phenolic bitterness. The wine continues to uncoil and reveal additional layers of complexity over the long, lingering, food-friendly finish. Just over 32,000 bottles were produced from Chenin Blanc that aged in a mix of old foudre, cement eggs and old barrels. 2024-2032’ – Anthony Mueller, Wine Advocate, 92/100

‘The 2022 Hereafter Here is a mixture of young and old vines due to the higher yields this year, whole bunch pressed with 18 months élevage, two-thirds on the lees. The well-defined bouquet has yellow plum, orange blossom, Japanese yuzu and crushed stone aromas. The palate is very harmonious, with a crisp line of acidity. A linear, almost Zen-like razor-sharp Chenin displaying wonderful nerve on the finish. Superb. 2024-2034’ – Neal Martin, Vinous, 91/100

‘Lovely intensity on the nose – classic Chenin. Masses of fruit leading the charge: apples, pears, papaya. But the fruit comes with a touch of cream and something a little toffee spicy, a little yogurt tangy and maple-syrup smoky. Rounded, pure, expressive and generously open. Silky and cardamom spicy finish. Just a baby with a long road ahead, but it would be difficult not to drink it now. 2023-2032’ – Tamlyn Currin,, 17/20
