'Big 15.3% alcohol fully assimilated into 2017’s alluring layers of dark fruit, violet & lavender perfume, dark chocolate & spice. Captivating now & styled to give pleasure into the 2030s. 80% new oak, 2 years. Stellenbosch WO, as next.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (93/100)

'This is very much a Shiraz rather than a Syrah - the two are synonymous but often imply different stylistic approaches - with plenty of colour, smoky 60% new wood, savoury mulberry, liquorice and blackberry fruit and enough of a tannic foundation to age in bottle. Drink 2022-29.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2020, 91/100

'A great example of this variety and what it can do in Stellenbosch. A bouquet of ripe red fruits is underpinned savoury notes and hints of pink peppercorn. These flavours follow on the palate which is intense and powerful upfront, yet still has a fine-grained tannin structure and good freshness keeps everything in balance. With both savoury and fruit notes this wine is a very versatile wine to enjoy with food, but be assured the mouth filling, supple tannin structure will ensure that one will be well rewarded by cellaring this wine carefully for a few years before enjoying!!' – Winemaker
