'“Our idea is to make a consistent, world class ultra premium wine,” says Bruwer Raats of MR de Compostella, the wine he makes with Mzokhona Mvemve. No one would deny that they’ve succeeded. Year after year, this Cabernet Sauvignon-based red blend is close to the top of the pile. Built to last, this is an ambitious, stylish, polished wine with restrained power, fine tannins and scented oak. Drink 2022-2035.' - Tim Atkin, SA Special Report 2018, 95/100.

'Cassis, blackberry and boysenberry fruit all mingle seamlessly with spicy, herbal tones of licorice root, Maduro tobacco, lightly charred cedar and wood spice on the nose and mouth of this robust wine. The palate is plush and bold in feel, with spicy, well-structured tannins that provide ample support to the ripe black fruit tones and a lingering grip to the close. It's well balanced and all in equal measure, suggesting a wine that's built for the long haul. Drink 2024–2030.' - Lauren Buzzeo, Wine Enthusiast, 94/100.
