'From Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge, highest ward in the valley & associated with freshness, which lifts rich texture & beguiling dark cherry perfume on 2019. Highly polished in form, it already gives much pleasure, with a savouriness that should increase with age.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (93/100)

'The lightest and most delicate of the Kershaw Pinot Noirs, this is a fresh, graceful wine made from two sites planted with the 777 and 115 clones. Juicy, racy and floral, with appealing texture, some underlying grip and a core of rose petal and wild strawberry. Drink 2021-26.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2021, 93/100

'The 2019 Pinot Noir GPS Series Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge has an open-knit red cherry, raspberry and leather-tinged bouquet that becomes more and more floral with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins and moderate depth, lightly spiced but maybe just missing a little density and grip on the finish. Very fine, but perhaps best drunk in its youth.' – Neal Martin, Vinous, 90/100 (Nov 2021)
