Named after an old Afrikaans saying 'agteros kom ook in die kraal' (translated as 'the hind ox also gets there'), meaning 'patience and persistence will be rewarded'. In the old days, when teams of oxen were used to pull farm implements, the youngest and least experienced ox in the team was positioned at the back. Over the years as he got stronger and more skilled he worked his way to the front. The grapes used to make this wine came from the oldest vineyard on the farm. These lovingly tended vineyards, under-valued in their youth, bore fruit for many years before their real potential was realized.

Tasting notes:
'Supple, ripe and sweetly oaked in one-third new barrels, Tyrrel Myburgh's Paarl Chenin has plenty of colour and concentration, notes of honey and cinnamon spice, appealing texture and enough acidity to freshen and lengthen the finish. Very drinkable. Drink 2020-23.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2020, 90/100

'A delicate wine with a complex array of aromas and flavours. Hints of baked apple, honey and flint stone. The palate is rich, yet elegant and is marked by a subtle, creamy texture.' – Winemaker
