‘The latest in a run of brilliant releases from Chris Keet, one of the quiet geniuses of the South African wine industry, this is a seven-site Stellenbosch blend of predominantly Cabernet Franc with 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot. Drinkable young, but capable of ageing well in bottle, this is a triumph over the tricky 2019 growing season, showing good texture, cedarwood, dark chocolate and green herb aromas, filigree tannins and tangy dark berry fruit. 2024-32’ – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2022, 96/100

‘The Cabernet Franc adds the spicy, restrained elegance and fine-grained tannins, the Merlot introduces plum and red berry flavours, while the Cabernet Sauvignon provides rigidity with firm tannins and blackberry and cassis flavours. The rich and ripe mulberry flavours of the Malbec are balanced by the fresh red berry acidity provided by the Petit Verdot. The 2019 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.’ – Winemaker
