'Cool and grassy with hints of white citrus and a touch of apple crumble, pineapple coulis, and sweet Indian spices.' – Decanter World Wine Awards, 92/100 (Silver)

'An intriguing style of Chardonnay from Nic van Aarde that combines richness, 35% new barrel fermentation and partial malolactic weight with lots of lemon zest acidity and structure. A wine with time on its side. Drink 2021-24.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2021, 91/100

'Conditions in the Banghoek Valley are exceptionally favourable for Chardonnay, as is reflected in this superb vintage. The wine displays a golden hue in the glass. On the nose, a flintiness is detectable among inviting aromas of peaches, honey melon, apricots and freshly baked brioche. The palate complements the aromas with exceptionally vibrant quince, papaya, ginger and loquat. Vibrant acidity and an exceptional mouth-feel gives a long and satisfying finish.' – Winemaker
