‘Graceful, poised 2022, from Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge fruit, aged 10 months in 45% new barrels. Gorgeous depth, breadth & layering of pure lemon & lime, creamy vanilla & fragrant white flowers, pithy grapefruit farewell. Superbly balanced made to last, decant in youth.’ – Platter’s Guide, 5*(95/100)

‘Draaiboek Wines is producing some of the most exciting Chardonnay coming out of the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley and this fourth release of the Onskuld Chardonnay is yet another highly accomplished wine. Spending 10 months in 45% new oak barrels on its fine lees, the minimal intervention winemaking definitely allows this cool climate terroir to shine, with aromatics full of earthy lemon peel, leesy biscuit, oatmeal, white citrus blossom and pronounced wet stone, petrichor mineral nuances. In the mouth, the Onskuld is bold and confident with plenty of cool climate acid tension over tangy lemon pastille and tangerine fruit notes. The balance on the wine is very impressive, as the fruit extract melts seamlessly into a harmonious salty crème brûlée and vanilla pod lime peel spice on the finish. There is really a lot to love about this wine which will undoubtedly appeal to connoisseurs of fine white Burgundy. Drink now and over the next 8 to 10+ years.’ – Greg Sherwood MW, 95/100

‘More concentrated than the Kinkel Chardonnay from the same winery, Onskuld uses grapes from the Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge and is made with the identical "minimal intervention approach", according to Stephanie Wild. Leesy, nuanced and well balanced, it has tangerine and waxed lemon flavours and scented, toasty 47% new oak. 2023-29’ – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2023, 92/100
