'Tasting pair of vintages - 2014 (93 pts) & 2015 - highlights great consistency, & stellar quality, the later release showing a little more freshness. 50% of the cuvée aged in 7% new pièce champenoise (205L barrels), 7 months, resulting in gorgeous brioche, roasted nuts, baked apple richness mingling with silky fine mousse. Sparklers with style, finesse & balance.' – Platter's Gudie, 4.5* (94/100)

'Only produced with fruit from Graham Beck's Robertson estate, this has the chalky focus that you often find in the best Blanc de Blancs from the valley. With partial barrel fermentation adding complexity and depth, this has flavours of pear and cashew, a hint of peach and savoury, umami notes. Drink 2020-25.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2020, 94/100

'An extraordinary example of blanc de blancs, made with 100% Chardonnay that was hand-selected from a specific limestone plot that helps to provide finesse and minerality. Four years on the lees following secondary fermentation. Aromas are wonderfully limpid and inviting including citrus fruits, apples, fresh dough, cashew nuts, brioche and a hint of sweet spices. On the palate it is dry, pure and precise with a linear structure and a long mouth-watering finish. Drinking Window 2020 - 2025.' – Decanter, 93/100

'Bright lime green colour with rich aromas of fresh lime and ripe apricot fruit on the nose. An exciting fine mousse with an explosion of tangerines on the palate. Great brioche and yeast complexity broaden the palate, leading to a long and elegant finish.' – Winemaker
