'Ranging from 25 to 40 years old, the vines grow in the decomposed granite soils of Paarl. You can taste the sunshine in this warm climate and it’s been blended with a touch of barrel-fermented fruit from the cooler Helderberg, Stellenbosch to lend freshness. Part-matured in 228L neutral French Oak for depth and a stainless steel component for purity.' – Winemaker

'Sam is super excited to be working with what he calls ‘gnarled Chenin bush vines on some of his favourite sites’. Ranging from 25-40 years old and planted in decomposed granite in Paarl, this wine will intrigue the masses. The aromas consist of white florals, winter melon, yellow stone fruit and some flinty reduction. The palate is broad with fruit density on the mid-palate and the finish is bright and textured with zippy acidity.' – Lauren Segers, June 2022

'Just over 1,000 bottles of this experimental Sémillon from the GD 1 clone were produced. Lovely lemon and lime citrus with white fruit purity gets support acts of nettle, fynbos and curry leaf spice. The palate is elegant with good textures and a lingering long and precise finish, drawing fruit, acidity and tannic grip to a pointed close. A portion skin contact adds a nice gravitas to the end. Delicious now but will reward cellaring. Impressively pure, this is a once off small batch from interesting vineyards of the Cape. This one from Elgin.' – James Pietersen (Jun 2021)
