Tasting notes on the 2019 vintage:
'This excellent Reserve bottling is all made with fruit from a south-facing, 19-year-old block on the Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge. Rich and concentrated, it's more Meursault than Puligny-Montrachet, with pear, beeswax and lemon butter flavours, scented 30% new wood and the acidity of the vintage. Drink 2021-27.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2020, 94/100

'Exemplary cool-climate chardonnay from a single parcel, 2019 emphasises minerality & perfume in its complex profile, salt & flint nuances with orchard blossom in the bouquet. Peach fruit is subtly seamed with vanilla from 25% new barrels on lingering palate.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (93/100)

'The 2019 Chardonnay Reserve, matured in 25% new oak, has a detailed bouquet of quite mineral-rich citrus fruit, red apple, vervain tea and light hazelnut aromas. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, fresh and vibrant, offering endearing tropical tones toward the finish. Superb persistency here. A really refined and quite sophisticated Chardonnay that will give at least a decade’s worth of drinking pleasure. Drink 2022-2035.' – Neal Martin, Vinous, 93/100 (Apr 2021)
