‘A pale crystalline lemon yellow colour, the aromatics are wonderfully cool, mineral and restrained showing top notes of the estate’s classical dusty granitic minerality before hints of dried hay, green baking herbs, dried fennel, jasmine, white peach and melted honey on warm white toast. Like the 2021, the wine displays a silky fresh textural palate with a fine harmonious weight of peach stone, apple pastille, nectarine and yellow orchard fruits underpinned by a spicy, liquid minerality and phenolic herbal spice on the long, sleek, alluring finish. Once again, a brilliantly conceived creation that speaks of the estate’s vineyards, vision and terroir over any specific varietal or winemaking characteristic. If you missed the impressive sell-out 2021 maiden release, then this delicious white is right up there again. Drink now and over 10 to 12+ years.’ – Greg Sherwood MW, 95+/100

‘Same 16 bushvine interplanted white varieties, but in 2022 harvested in 2 stages rather than together to address different ripening dates. Incredibly perfumed - white florals, fresh herbs, various stonefruit, simply kissed with older oak - & rich yet expertly balanced with piquant citrus acid. Full malo, unlike range siblings. 2021 (4.5 stars, 94 pts) was the first. Also in 375 ml, 1.5L & 3L.’ – Platter's Guide, 5* (95/100)

‘From a 2ha vineyard planted to 16 different varieties. Two pickings, fermented and matured for 13 months in older 500-litre barrels. Lemon, peach, quince, fynbos and a hint of lanolin on the nose. Good fruit density – quite broad in structure, lots of flavour and not without freshness. Rather subtle given the infamous heat spikes that applied in the lead-up to harvest. Alc: 13.5%.’ – Christian Eedes,, 93/100

‘A sense of quiet luxury on the opening chords; thatch, heather, white blossom and French linen give way to green pineapple, lemon balm and fresh honey. The fruit weaves richer on the palate, silken ribbons of peach, apricot and peardrop. A squeeze of limey acidity enlivens and sculpts around lush fruit, going flintier to the side palate and evolving into an appetising mineral-saltiness on the finish.’ – Winemaker

Producer information Nestled in the corner of the majestic Du Toitskloof Pass, the Brookdale Estate vineyards are exposed to strong winds that reduce the crop but offer much-needed cooling in Paarl’s warm climate. It’s the perfect recipe for producing wines of real character. Brookdale extends over 80 hectares with 27 planted to vine and the remainder left to revert to its natural habitat. The historic estate has been lovingly restored by the Rudd family, with the Manor House rebuilt and the vineyards rejuvenated and replanted. Bird and animal life are rich and abundant. Every season brings different moods, different hues and different lives.
