‘Viticulturist-cum-winemaker Lucinda Heyns specialises in graceful, understated reds and whites. This Chenin Blanc, fermented in neutral oak and aged on its lees for seven months, has honeysuckle and hay bale aromas, flavours of lanolin, stone and citrus and a frisson of stony reduction. 2022-28’ – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2022, 93/100

‘Grapes from an Elgin vineyard on shale. Spontaneously fermented and matured for eight months in older oak. Pear, peach, apple and some smoky reduction on the nose. The palate is pure and direct. With bright acidity and a pithy finish, it comes across as extremely tightly wound currently – needs six to 12 months to unfurl.’ – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 92/100
