‘44% Grenache, 28% Cinsault and 28% Syrah, all sourced from the Swartland, some 40% fermented with stems, before maturation lasting 10 months in old 300- and 500-litre barrels. Expressive aromatics of red and black berries, orange, olive, lavender and herbs while the palate has good fruit concentration, snappy acidity and crunchy tannins. Juicy on entry but ends savoury, the different components combining to good effect.’ – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 94/100

‘Three growers supply the grapes for this Swartland assemblage of Grenache with 28% each of Syrah and Cinsault, made in a style that is "drinkable but serious", according to Franco Lourens. Savoury, peppery and spicy, with some whole bunch perfume and texture and a macedoine of plum, pomegranate and blackberry fruit. 2024-29’ – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2023, 93/100
