Tasting notes on the 2020 vintage:
'Stunning value for money at just R145, this screwcapped Chenin Blanc is not far behind the Rooidraai bottling from the same Swartland source in quality. Taut, focused and fresh with citrus and green apple fruit, a hint of oak, leesy complexity and undertones of hay bale and lanolin. Drink 2021-26.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2021, 92/100

'From same farm as Rooidraai, 2020 the more open, expressing Swartland’s typical pure-fruited generosity of ripe peach, melon & dried pear. Smoothly rich, there’s also plenty of energy & an extensive finish. 50% wholebunch pressed. Older oak 10 months.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (91/100)

'Old vine Swartland Chenin Blanc for R145 a bottle? Count me in. Grapes for this come from a 1981 vineyard on Hugo Carinus’s Swartland farm, winemaking by the acclaimed Lukas van Loggerenberg. The 2020 shows some not unpleasant leesy reduction before citrus and peach while the palate has good texture and weight given an alcohol of just 12.5%, the acidity nicely integrated, the finish savoury, even slightly bitter – it all makes for characterful and rewarding drop.' – Christian Eedes,, 91/100
