'Consistently the best Riesling in South Africa, this incredible, dry Alsace-style white is mineral, leesy and bright, with stone-sucking acidity, lots of extract and concentration and lime-like freshness. 2019-27.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2018, 95/100

'Aromatics of pear, peach, lime, green apple and some flinty reduction. The palate is tightly wound with punchy acidity and a very dry finish. As arresting as ever.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 93/100

'Thrilling peach complexity on 2017, with an early aromatic note of kerosene. Bone-dry, with good balance & texture, the fresh acidity integrated with concentrated fruit to lively, moreish effect. Should develop a good few years. Natural ferment.' – Platter's SA Wine Guide 2019, 91/100

Producer information Spioenkop Wines, situated in the Elgin Valley, was established in 2008 with Koen Roose as winemaker. Koen’s philosophy is that of low intervention, allowing the wines to express their region. His single-minded, terroir-driven approach encapsulates the passion that will redefine the Cape wine industry. Biodynamic practices are also followed, although Spioenkop is not certified biodynamic. The high altitude and cool climate of the Spioenkop terrior has aided in Spioenkop producing one of the finest Rieslings in SA. John Platter selected the 2013 as one of his 7 wines to present at the 2015 Swartland Revolution, saying that it was the finest South African Riesling that he has ever tasted.
