'One bush-vine block on Kaapzicht's farm in the Bottelary Hills supplies the fruit for this premium Pinotage, which has only been made in 2012, 2015 and now 2017. Rich, concentrated and structured, it's a very serious expression of the grape, with 10% new wood and raspberry and bramble fruit. The tannins are very polished. Drink 2021-30.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2019, 94/100

'Cape Bordeaux red blend. New oak reduced from 100% to 80%, length of maturation from 24 to 18 months and the wine is the better for it. Red and black fruit, dried herbs and a little rose-like perfume on the nose. Medium-bodied (despite an alcohol of 14.5%) and nicely energetic – pure, fresh and super-dry on the finish.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 93/100

'Statuesque Bordeaux blend showing elegance & leashed power in 2017. Succulent, but with squeeze of tannin from all-new oak, rich fruitcake & spice showing well. Majority cab (60%), equal 15% merlot & cab franc, splashes petit verdot & malbec. No 2016. Stellenbosch WO, as next.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (91/100)
