'Grapes from Curl’s own Elgin property, 3.12ha densely planted to clones 667 and 777. Matured for eight months in 300-lite barrels, 25% new. Black cherry, rose, herbs, earth and a hint of spice on the nose while the palate displays impressive density of fruit, bright acidity and firm but fine tannins, the finish long and dry. This has great structure, being full but not imposing, and you have to admire how balanced and proportionate it is. A return to form after the slightly awkward 2019.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 94/100

'A deeply fragrant, complex bouquet of rose petals, purple flowers, and autumn leaves are followed by layers of kirsch cherries, black plum, and a feather-light dusting of spice. Pure, cool and light-footed, reminiscent of its mist-shrouded Elgin origins, the palate is both as delicate and as robust as a ribbon of silk, wrapped around a taut core of crunchy red cherries and cranberries.

Powdery tannins that build and dissolve complement its fresh, fruity nature. Running right through, rapier quick, the acidity is long and vital, grounded by notes of white mushroom and the nostalgic pull of wintery earth on the finish.' – Jean Smit, Winemaker
