'From Swartland Chenin Blanc. Matured in only older oak for 10 months (the 2019 had a 25% new oak component). Subtle aromatics of citrus, peach, apple, and hay plus the smallest hint of reduction while the palate shows great purity and linearity – lovely clarity of fruit, racy acidity, and a pithy finish. This is a taut, almost severe wine but quite riveting as a result. Alcohol: 12.5%.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 96/100

'10 months in old French oak. Aromatics of green apple, citrus flowers and hay. A hint of reduction like flint on steel. The palate is linear, fresh and elegant. Pure clean fruit with a racy acidity. Our best vintages show a nervous intensity and this year is no different.' – Winemaker
