‘Was ‘Chenin Blanc Skin Ferment Amphora’. 2019 differs from 2018 in shorter skin maceration & time on lees in amphora (7 days vs 14, 9 months vs 10). Textured, spicy & broad, with apple skin, citrus zest & creamy almond nuance the result. Vivid acidity counters rich fantail of apricot & peach. Degree higher alcohol at 13.9%.’ – Platter’s Guide, 4.5*(93/100)

‘Source of grapes as above. Fermented in amphorae with a seven-day period of skin contact and then matured for nine months. Potpourri, dried herbs, spice, peach, orange and a hint of honey on the nose while the palate is rich and broad – good depth of flavour, bright acidity and a deeply savoury, slightly grippy finish.’ – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 93/100

'Peach, orange, lemon peel and a hint of spice on the nose. Good fruit density, with the skin-contact providing linearity, steely complexity, and an intriguing maritime salinity.' – Kleine Zalze
