This vintage has not been rated yet, see the tasting notes on the 2020 vintage below:

'69% Chenin Blanc, 16% Viognier and 15% Sauvignon Blanc, the first two varieties fermented on the skins for around a week while maturation lasts 12 months in mainly older oak. Complex aromatics – some reduction before citrus, apple, stone fruit, some yeasty character, ginger and other spice as well as some floral perfume in the background. The palate has impressive richness to go with tangy acidity, the finish nicely savoury. It’s an abundant wine with layers of flavour and good weight and texture, managing to be combine a certain sleekness with grip.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 95/100

'Is Alice Verburg having a growing influence on the style of the Luddite whites? It would seem so. This a fresh, low-intervention, partially skin fermented cuvée of Chenin Blanc with 36% Sauvignon Blanc and Viognier, combining Bot River and Elgin grapes. Complex, layered and nutty, with a salty tang and a hint of stone fruit from partial botrytis. Drink 2021-24.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2021, 91/100

'Crown cap closure, tag-like neck label lauding saboteurs, as Red. 2020 chenin (61%) with viogner & sauvignon blanc has salty edge to its tropical tones, firm structure from 10 months in old barrels. WO Cape South Coast.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (90/100)

Producer information In 1999 Niels and Penny Verburg established their own wine farm on the slopes of the Houw Hoek Mountains in Bot River. They named their farm Luddite, meaning ‘someone who is resistant to new technology or new ways of working’. This definition captures their winemaking philosophy perfectly as Niels is constantly striving to create perfect wines despite the challenging conditions thrown his way. Niels and his team at Luddite are incredibly passionate about their Shiraz and are never willing to compromise on quality. This dedication translates into consciously-farmed grapes and small-batch wines that have amazing character.
