B Vintners, Liberté 750ml 2017South Africa, Stellenbosch
'Gavin Slabbert uses grapes from two granite-based parcels in the Polkadraai sub-region to make this juicy, sappy, appealingly refreshing Pinotage. Crunchy red berry and bramble fruit meld seamlessly with the scented oak. Drink 2020-27.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2019, 93/100
'Pure & subtle 2017, like 2016 (5 stars, 95 pts), skilfully constructed & precise, showcasing variety’s positive attributes. Floral, medium bodied & fresh, clever oaking (16 months, 10% new) allows black cherry fruit to take centre stage.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (93/100)
'50% whole-bunch fermentation before maturation lasting 14 months in French oak, 10% new. The nose shows red and black cherries, plums, a little earthiness, cinnamon and other spice. The palate is relatively round and smooth textured. Well balanced and very flavourful, this remains a cleverly toned down take on the variety.' – Christian Eedes, WineMag.co.za, 91/100
