'A new wine to the Kershaw line up, this is sourced from La Vierge on the Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge and is a cuvée of mostly the 777 and 115 Dijon clones. Pretty, perfumed and refined, with rose petal and Turkish Delight aromas that segue into sweet, palate-caressing flavours. Drink 2020-24.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2019, 93/100

'From Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge, 2018 with ripe strawberry aromas has more obvious charm in youth than its stablemate, more richness (though balanced by firm acidity & less tannin) but less intensity. A subtle savoury element, though, on the good finish.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (93/100)

'The 2018 Pinot Noir Kershaw GPS Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge was 65% aged in 228- and 500-liter barrels for 10–11 months. It has an open, expressive, almost loose-knit nose of red cherries and crushed strawberry fruit, simple but effective. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins and fine acidity, and lightly spiced with touches of sous-bois and brown spices toward the elegant finish. Very fine. Drink 2022-2032.' – Neal Martin, Vinous, 91/100 (Apr 2021)

'Captivating floral attributes underscored by purity, focus and freshness framed by fine powder tannins yet cushioned by a succulent texture and flavours of black cherry, pomegranate, rose petal and raspberry.' – Richard Kershaw, Winemaker
