‘"It ages the best" is Richard Kershaw's verdict on this clonal selection from Bokkeveld shale soils and I think he may be right. Pure, sappy, chiselled and stony, with fine oak and lemongrass and citrus core, this is the kind of thing that would shine in a comparative tasting with a set of Chablis Grands Crus. 2023-32’ – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2022, 95/100

‘The nose shows pear, lime and lemon plus some struck-match reduction. More linear and tense on the palate – high acidity and a pithy finish. Alc: 13%.’ – Christian Eedes,, 94/100
