'I'm increasingly impressed by the wines from Carla Pauw's boutique operation. This fine, nuanced cuvée of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay has tiny bubbles, flavours of fresh bread and wild mushrooms, tangy acidity and a satisfyingly dry finish. Drink 2021-24.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2020, 92/100

'Brioche-rich, resolutely dry zero-dosage NV sparkling from 59% pinot noir & chardonnay. Tingling acidity underscores refined apple pie fruit with truffle notes, rounded body, lingering finish. Robertson & Somerset West grapes (as Reserve), 15% wooded, 20% reserve wine, 30 months on lees.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (91/100)

'Crisp, fresh rose and lavender with apple mousse on the nose; flavours of white peach, green apple, orange rind; a clean finish and exceptional length. Perfect as an aperitif.' – Carla Pauw, Winemaker
