'For earlier drinking than stablemates but 2018, like 2017 (5 stars, 96 pts), beautifully proportioned & fine, bright citrus acidity drawing out the finish & 30% new oak less overt. Own Banhoek grapes plus small portion from Helderberg. All the wines bunch pressed.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (93/100)

'Predominantly from own Fijnbosch grapes plus small portion from Helderberg property Nooitgedacht. A subtle nose with a top note of blossom before pear, citrus, some leesy complexity and vanilla. Quite light-bodied and vivacious relative to its stablemates with bright acidity and savoury finish. Archetypal modern Chardonnay.' – Winemag Prescient Chardonnay Report 2020, 90/100

'A blend of two mountain vineyards, our estate Fijnbosch vineyard and the neighboring Nooitgedacht vineyard, provide an aromatic explosion of lime, lemon, orange blossom, jasmine and spice. A tight palate of citrus and rich minerals drives a saline finish, light on its feet yet dense and long.' – Graham Weerts, Winemaker
