'The yields are tiny at two tons per hectare in this 68-year-old Pinotage block, which partly explains the high price. But it's also an attempt to wave the flag for a variety that Kanonkop has almost made its own. Cinnamon and ginger spice notes segue into palate that's rich and layered, featuring blueberry and blood orange fruit, granular tannins and vivid acidity. Drink 2024-35.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2021, 96/100

'The nose shows abundant floral perfume before red cherry, banana loaf and attractive oak spice (maturation lasts 18 months in 225-litre barrels, 100% new). The palate is medium-bodied with lovely form – pure fruit, nicely integrated acidity and fine tannins. There’s that pleasing sweetness typical of the variety but in general there’s nothing too overt or forced about this release.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 96/100

'Deep purple in colour, with rich and layered flavours of red and black cherries, dark plums, wild bramble fruit with subtle sweet spice and oak undertones. The seamlessly integrated oak and velvety tannins add firm support and structure to the sultry fruit core. The perfect balance of elegance and complexity- iron fist in a velvet glove!' – Abrie Beeslaar, Winemaker
