'John Loubser makes this brilliant sparkling wine from Robertson Chardonnay and 30% Darling Pinot Noir. Aged on lees for 42 months, it's a lightly wooded, satisfyingly dry style with citrus, buttered croissant and toasted almond notes, fine bubbles and savoury finish. Drink 2022-28.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2021, 96/100

'Chardonnay with 30% pinot noir, refined 2017 has citrus & baked red apple spiced with toasty notes from partial oak ferment. Pinprick mousse is rich & creamy, leads to briskly dry, lingering conclusion. 44 months on lees, 6 on cork. Plenty room to grow.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (93/100)

'70% Chardonnay and 30% Pinot Noir. Fermentation of the Chardonnay split between stainless steel tank and barrel. Blend includes a reserve portion of Chardonnay which has spent 12 months in old oak. A minimum of 41 months on the lees. Complex aromatics of honey, biscuit, ripe orange, strawberry and even some nutty, spicy notes. The palate is rich with a creamy mousse and a gently savoury finish.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 91/100
