‘There’s a second vineyard in the mix this year, and they were able to pick the younger vineyard on the Polkadraai a bit later. Nice depth here with warm, sweet spicy cherry and berry fruit with a slight herby, peppery edge and nice depth. There’s a sweet, viscous core to the fruit. Rich and spicy.’ – Jamie Goode, Wineanorak.com, 93/100

‘Grapes from two Polkadraai Hills vineyards on granite soils, the one planted in 1990 and the other in 2017. Quite heady aromatics of dark cherry, floral perfume and herbs while the palate is that much more substantial than 2021 – dense fruit and snappy acidity, the finish nicely grippy without being astringent.’ – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 92/100

‘Mid cherry red. Deliciously scented with pure dark-red fruit and a hint of crushed stones. I was worried this would be less fresh than the 2021, and it tastes as if it is even though the numbers are roughly the same. Perhaps the acidity is more hidden by depth of fruit, along with the higher alcohol, but the fruit is still vibrant, both red and dark-red in character. Silky tannins even now but I miss the peppery quality of the 2021. The oak is well-judged and this may have broader appeal than the 2021, which I loved, even if this is probably a more complete, rounded wine. 2023-2026’ – Julia Harding MW, JancisRobinson.com, 16/20

‘Deep purple, with a Violet rim. Aromatic mulberry and spiced plum notes on the nose. Generous and juicy, the plate shows medium weight with ripeness and a substantial tannin that draws into a rewardingly full finish.’ – Winemaker
