'Always chenin-based, 63% on 2018, with viognier, clairette, verdelho & grenache ex Swartland & Voor Paardeberg. Ferment & ageing in oak (14% new) & concrete ‘egg’. Complex aromas lead to sweet-fruited, ripely rich but fresh & elegant palate, cut by juicy acidity. Also in 1.5L.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (94/100)

'Tasted alongside the 2017 release, this was (somewhat surprisingly) my preferred wine of the pair. Dominated by Chenin Blanc with the remaining 37% divided between Viognier, Clairette Blanche, Verdelho and Grenache Blanc, this has notes of guava, pear and honey, appealing texture and a fresh, tangy finish. Drink 2021-24.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2020, 94/100

'This is a blended dry white wine comprised of 63% Chenin blanc, 13% Viognier, 9% Clairette blanche, 6% Verdehlo and 4% Grenache blanc. The wine displays a stunning vibrant pale straw colour. The nose is packed with notes of white peach, quince and hints of jasmine floral perfumed aromas. The entry on the palate bursts with citrus and white peach flavours leading to a textured and rich mid-palate. There is immense complexity in this wine with a sense of elegance and freshness. The wine finishes with a slight salinity which leaves one wanting more.' – Miles Mossop, Winemaker
