‘One of SA's international big hitters with nearly 200,000 cases made, excluding smaller (375ml) & larger bottle formats. From Swartland, seamless Syrah-led Rhône-ish blend (dab of Cab), wholeberry ferment in concrete & steel, 5% new oak, down from 10% in 2021, mostly barrique. Juicy red & black fruit seasoned with fresh herbs, fynbos & earth.’ – Platter's Guide, 4*(95/100)

‘Boysenberry and dark cherry dominate an inviting nose, with gentle scents of violets and rose petals and intriguing whiffs of exotic spice. The brambly black and red fruits of the nose follow through with flavours of ripe plums, black currant, dried cranberries and blueberries. Slight hints of cured meat and espresso add complexity to the round, silky mid-palate. The mouth-coating texture of dark milk chocolate is balanced with fine, powdery tannins and fresh yet integrated acidity. The wine is medium-bodied, lithe, and elegant with licorice and subtle hints of crushed coriander and black cardamom lingering on a smooth, soft finish.' – Winemaker
