'Cape Point's Reserve comes from the upper part of the farm, where the wind is at its strongest and the three blocks were picked eight times in 2019. Barrel fermented with a 4.5% Semillon component, this is tangy, precise and very complex with pink grapefruit and gunflint notes and a long, tapering finish. Drink 2021-25.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2020, 94/100

'From 8 pickings off 3 blocks on granitic soils, with a dash of semillon, 2019 old-oaked as usual (giving texture & muting any aggression). Stonefruit & citrus notes among the complexity. Finer balance than Noordhoek version, the acidity well integrated.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (94/100)

'The 2019 Sauvignon Blanc Cape Point Vineyards Reserve undergoes 100% barrel fermentation. It has a clean, crisp nose, not far removed from the Isliedh, very fragrant and precise. The palate is well balanced and shows a little more weight than the Isliedh, although it does not possess the same level of complexity or minerality on the finish. But it is still a very fine Sauvignon Blanc from winemaker Riandri Visser.' – Neal Martin, Vinous, 91/100 (Apr 2021)

'Expressive asparagus and herby finbos straying into gooseberry and green fruits. The palate is full, well-oaked, and with a long finish.' – Decanter World Wine Awards, 91/100 (Silver)

'An elegant representation of our unique terroir, with hints of floral spice, cardamom and white pepper. The generous fruit profile showcases lemon, tangerine and ripe nectarines. Combining all the elements of our beautiful coastal setting with notes of kelp and a salty sea breeze character own to Cape Point. The delicate notes of perfumed spring blossoms with subtle hints of oak ageing gives this wine added layers of complexity. The palate is rich and textured with a pithy quality, finishing with the characteristic lengthy mineral edge. 2020 – 25.' – Winemaker
