'Dryland vineyards, different elevations, staggered harvesting & 3 months on lees give 2020 its cool-climate minerality, streamlined freshness. But that’s not all, also fresh peas, an appealing salty note. A sauvignon template, nervy & focused.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (94/100)

'This wine is bright with a light straw-like appearance highlighted by a light green hue. The subtle aromatics take a couple of swirls of the glass to peel away at the many underlying layers of this intricate wine. Initial aromas of lemongrass and lime lead to bolder aromas of the more tropical spectrum, such as gooseberry and white peach. This elegant wine will greet you with a final bouquet of blackcurrant, citrus and elderflower, as you prepare to take your first sip.

The concentrated aromatics carry effortlessly to the palate, where they integrate with a rich and textured mouthfeel. This wine is beautifully refined and elegant with a mineral edge and crisp acidity. The extended lees contact post fermentation gives this wine great weight and length. Made in a classic style, illustrating elegance, texture and freshness, this wine will benefit from a couple of years of ageing under ideal cellaring conditions. ' – Justin van Wyk, winemaker

Producer information Perched just beneath Constantia Nek, this picturesque boutique wine estate has been part of the Constantia valley’s great tradition of winegrowing since 2000. The Waibel family must be credited for turning this farm around and placing it under the steady eye of overseer and Bordeaux legend, Dominique Hebrard, with Justin van Wyk’s skilled hand in the cellar. Their flagship range aptly named Two, Three and Five, according to the combination of Bordeaux varietals in the blend makeup, has quickly garnered a strong following for their consistent power and detail.
