'A sense of grace about this 5-way Bordeaux blend, cab & cab franc again leading in 2018. Mix of red & black fruit, pencil shavings & subtle spice. 19 months in French oak, just 10% new. Harmonious, the 15% alcohol well integrated, 2.5 years bottle maturation before release making a difference. Fine tannins stretch like silk on the palate.' – Platter's Guide, 5* (95/100)

'Master blender Chris Keet uses grapes from eight different Stellenbosch vineyards to produce this consistently outstanding cuvée of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Malbec and a little Petit Verdot. Textured, fine and perfumed, even at 15% alcohol, it's more open than the 2017, with fine-boned tannins, tobacco leaf, coffee bean, red berry and blackcurrant flavours and a structured finish. Drink 2023-30.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2021, 95/100

'The 2018 First Verse is a fine reflection of this exceptional vintage with harmony, elegance and power summing this wine up. Enjoy the wine with poultry, red meat, seared tuna or matured cheese.' – Chris Keet, Winemaker

Producer information After 15 years at the helm of producing award-winning wines at Cordoba, Christopher Keet began to entertain the thought of producing his own wines.
