‘Grapes from Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge. Matured for 10 months in a 2,600-litre foudre. Complex aromatics of pear, peach, citrus, oatmeal, nuts and spice. The palate is rich in the best sense, possessing both weight and texture, the acidity well integrated. Plenty of detail, the finish long ans savoury. Alc: 13.71%.’ – Christian Eedes,, 96/100

‘Complex and arresting, this vintage melds the freshness of grapefruit and white pear with the richness and depth of banoffee pie. The palate is textured and pithy, showing salted macadamia and oatmeal beside lemon peel. A generous expression of the single vineyard site, but with the fruit and acidity to age.’ – Winemaker
