'The recently bottled 2021, has a slow-to-unfold nose of dried pineapple, preserved lemon, and waxy lanolin complexity. There is lots of intensity on the palate though, with a pointed and driving saline acidity striking the top note. This leads to a savoury and citrus edged energy carrying through to a long and concentrated finish. It will need a few months to settle for all its characters to shine. This is a wine of definitive Swartland concentration, power, and grip.'– James Pietersen, April 2022

`On the nose, we pick up a variety of stone fruits like pear and apricot accompanied by some hints of cantaloup, quince and honeycomb. There is a certain flintiness/saltiness to the wine which runs from the nose straight through to the pallet and just pulls everything nicely together. The slightest hint of reduction almost emphasises and elevates that freshness.' – Winemaker

This vintage has not been rated yet, see tasting notes on the 2020 vintage:
`Showing the tension and grip that are typical of old-vine Chenin Blanc from granite soils on the Paardeberg, this is an appealingly well-structured white with minimal oak, leesy texture, focused acidity and layers of beeswax and aromatic spices. 2021-25` – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2021, 91/100

‘Honeyed Chenin nose with utterly correct high acidity. Tight and tense. Should age very well. Really long.’ – Jancis Robinson, JancisRobinson.com, 17/20
