'From Stellenbosch Chenin Blanc. Whereas 75% of the 2019 was matured in concrete, the 2020 went into old oak for 10 months. This vintage saw a more open canopy in the lead-up to harvest after concerns that it was cropping too much the previous year and there is certainly a more “sun-kissed” quality to the wine. Honeysuckle, peach, yellow apple, oatmeal, and spice on the nose while the palate is relatively round with moderate acidity. Well balanced and flavourful, the finish possessing a saline quality. Alcohol: 13.5%.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 93/100

'10 months in old French oak. Yellow apple, peach and lemongrass on the nose. Also some honey melons. There is beautifully managed weight on the palate, while keeping the purity of fruit and saline energy that we have come to love about this vineyard.' – Winemaker
