'The fermentation stopped naturally on this exotic, botrytis-affected Chenin Blanc at 140 grams of sugar. Showing flavours of baking spices, pineapple and guava, it has impressive concentration, understated wood and a lemony, balanced finish. Drink 2019-24.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2019, 93/100

'Rich & robust 2018 ups the sugar (now 140 g/l) but alcohol is dialled down from previous, making for balanced & elegant botrytis dessert. Apricots, marmalade, pineapples all take turns in the spotlight before lengthy honeyed finish rounds out satisfying mouthful. 375 ml.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (93/100)

'The wine has a beautiful golden straw colour. The nose & palate are characterized by wax, apricot, pineapple, marmalade and honey comb flavours. There is plenty of sweetness (more than most vintages) and the finish is marked by lingering acidity.' – Winemaker
