‘Is this the world's greatest Pinotage? It's certainly in the top one, as the English football manager, Brian Clough, used to joke. Sourced from a 70-year-old vineyard of 3.9 hectares, it’s an intense, focused, concentrated red that handles its new French oak easily, showing layers of blueberry, wild strawberry and liquorice, lots of energy and succulent, polished tannins. 2024-37’ – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2023, 97/100

'The aromatics are compelling – cassis and black cherry plus pleasing notes of vanilla, chocolate, freshly ground coffee beans, incense and earth, while a certain leafiness adds an intriguing counterpoint. The palate is really well delineated with succulent fruit, fresh acidity and firm, nicely grippy tannins. The finish, in turn, is long and ultra-dry. A wine of great aplomb.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 97/100

‘Standout expression of old-vine pinotage, testimony to variety’s potential. Arresting blackcurrant & smoke fragrance on 2021, succulent fruit & flawless dry finish. Dense, compact core soaks up all-new oak, 18 months, adding to already powerful, layered grape tannins, enhancing the whole’s stateliness. Like siblings, for decade-plus cellaring.’ – Platter's Guide, 5* (96/100)

‘Deep purple in colour, with a concentrated explosion of red and black cherries, vanilla, dark chocolate, and sweet spice. The palate provides additional complex notes of red roses, cured meats and coffee grinds and a lifted finish. The perfect balance and refreshment and complexity - iron fist in a velvet glove’ – Winemaker
