Tasting notes on the 2018 vintage:
'Winemaker Pieter Carstens didn't bottle a Heritage Chenin Blanc in 2016 or 2017, so it's good to see it back in the range. Sourced from shale soils, this is a subtle, focused, deftly wooded white with beeswax and lemon rind notes and a long, tapering, mineral-etched finish. Drink 2020-26.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2020, 92/100

'A bold honeyed nose with yellow apples, pineapple and dried herb complexity. Zesty, bright acidity with a floral finish.' – Decanter World Wine Awards, 90/100 (Silver)

'2018, first since 2014 (87 pts), echoes latter’s subtle fruit, rich texture, both well-sustained. Still youthful, yet to absorb 90% new oak; has concentration for that & to grow with age.' – Platter's Guide, 4*
