'Colombard (from 38 year old vines), ferment in acacia barrels, unusual features in cap classique, realised with house’s usual sophistication. NV well-focused by gentle bead, balanced dosage & subtle input from year on lees. Quiet wild-herb nuance & spice add distinction.' – Platter's Guide, 4*

'From old-vine Colombard harvested towards the end of February 2019. Spontaneously fermented in old 500-litre acacia barrels. 12 months on the lees after secondary fermentation. Pear, apple, thatch and some earthiness on the nose while the palate is lean with a fine mousse, racy acidity and a salty finish – great as an aperitif.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, (not scored)
