Tasting notes:
'Registered single-vineyard of 43 year old dryland chenin on decomposed shale, 2019 savoury & earthy, ripe pineapple fruit on a backdrop of coriander, aniseed, almond biscuit & light toast. Endless finish carried by salty acidity. 2017 (4.5 stars, 94 pts) from same Durbanville bushvines. No 2018.' – Platter's Guide, 5* (95/100)

'From a 1977 Durbanville vineyard on shale. Stone fruit, naartjie and orange as well dried herbs, ginger and a slight waxy character. Rich and round on the palate with nicely integrated acidity and a gently savoury finish.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 94/100

'Not made in 2018 - "too hot" says Franco Lourens - this superb Chenin is made with fruit from a dry-farmed, bush-vine vineyard in Durbanville. Broad and textured, but not fat, it's sinewy and muscular with subtle old wood, pear and beeswax flavours and refreshing, balancing acidity. Drink 2021-25.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2020, 94/100
