'The kind of white blend that the Cape does as well anywhere, this is Chenin Blanc-dominated with 45% Colombard, Verdelho, Viognier, Grenache Blanc and Muscat d'Alexandrie. Aged in concrete and older barrels, it has notes of cashew, beeswax and lemon peel, with yeasty intensity and lots of mid-palate texture. Drink 2021-25.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2021, 94/100

'55% Chenin Blanc, 14% Colombard, 11% Verdelho, 10% Viognier, 8% Grenache Blanc and 2% Muscat d’Alexandrie. Citrus, peach and even a little melon to go with spice, fynbos and a little leesy complexity. The palate shows dense fruit and a nice line of acidity before a saline finish. Tightly wound with good intricacy of flavour.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 93/100

'The first of our “canvas wines” or blends, this has been our flagship wine since day one. We continue to add vineyards to this blend to attempt to showcase a greater representation of the Swartland, its varieties and soil types. This wine is Chenin blanc based as this is the most celebrated white variety in the Swartland and has a fantastic track record in South Africa. Other varieties include 14% Colombard, 11% Verdelho, 10% Viognier, 8% Grenache blanc and 2% Muscat d’Alexandrie. The wine has typical Swartland texture and spice.' – André Bruyns, Winemaker
