'Wholebunch, wild ferment/9 months in mostly new oak, but 2019 handles it with ease. Preserved quince & apricot, Lemon Cream biscuit savoury seam, there’s lots going on. Richly textured, flavourful, very long finish. Can age. More character than 2018 (4 stars, 89 pts).' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (93/100)

'It might seem strange to talk about white wines in terms of their tannic structure, but it makes sense on this naturally fermented Chenin made in partnership with Loire producer Vincent Carême. Grippy, intensely stony and concentrated, with layers of thatch, citrus peel and aniseed and a savoury finish. Drink 2021-27.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2021, 92/100

At Leeuwenkuil they follow a sustainable farming approach with as little interference as possible. Leeuwenkuil offers staggering value in general and caused a stir when their 2013 Shiraz was given a 92-point score in Decanter.
