'This multi-vineyard blend includes grapes from Ceres for the first time in addition to parcels sourced from the greater Hemel-en-Aarde and Elgin and this seems to have elevated the quality. The nose shows struck match, peach and citrus plus a hint of oatmeal while the palate has great depth, vibrant acidity and a savoury finish. Vivid and intensely flavoured. No mean achievement given that total production is 15 981 bottles.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 94/100

'Lifted and fresh, with beautiful floral perfume, white pear and attractive oak spice. Poised with a rounded, textured palate and spot-on acidity – pure, mineral and delineated. A great example of a Cape Chardonnay.' – James Pietersen (May 2021)

'This is both a fuller bodied and more exotic vintage, showing white peach, papaya, jasmine and notable lemongrass on the nose. A palate of butterscotch and lemon curd is tart yet mouth-coating and cut by a stony, saline spine that keeps the wine taut and upright. Pronounced in its youth but can be aged to 2028 and perhaps beyond.' – Peter-Allan Finlayson, Winemaker
