‘From a 3ha vineyard in Elgin, Sam Lambson has produced a bright and broody Syrah laced with smoke and spice notes and complemented by firm tannins. With 20% whole bunch, the tannins are firm and there’s an effortless weight to this wine that keeps you coming back for more.’ – 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)
