Tasting notes on the 2018 vintage:
'The Green Man is a pure Chardonnay MCC, made with grapes from a 29-year-old parcel on shale and limestone soils. Very lightly wooded, it's a taut, focused, mineral-etched style with citrus and green apple fruit, a nutty undertone and the concentration to age in bottle. Drink 2022-28.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2021, 93/100

'100% Chardonnay. A small portion undergoing barrel fermentation. A minimum of 24 months on the lees. Some flinty reduction before citrus, peach and a hint of yeasty complexity on the nose. Good fruit definition to go with a fine mousse, bright acidity and a super-dry finish. Wonderfully taut as usual.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 93/100

'Intensity, tension inherent in 100% chardonnay bubbly from Robertson’s limestone. 2018 still youthful, full of citrus zip, tingling bead, holding at bay creamy weight from 29 months on lees. Invigoratingly dry; will benefit from short settling. 10% older-oak ferment. Magnum too, like 2017 (5 stars, 95 pts).' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (93/100)
