‘There is no doubting that the Oude Nektar 2015 and 2017 were soaring creations of note. But when you taste the 2019 block buster from Rudger van Wyk, you realise that this is yet another epic wine where the vintage and vineyard held hands to give the winemaker something really very special to work with. The aromatics are classical and beautifully straight laced with notes of rose petals, violets, pencil shavings, grilled herbs, black berries and raspberries bursting to the fore before hints of smoky fireplace embers, sweet tobacco leaf, iodine and graphite nuances. An intense full-bodied palate is simultaneously lithe and light on its feet with a striking elegance and a vibrant core of earthy black currant and black cherry fruits embraced by silky soft powdery tannins. An impressively regal Cabernet Sauvignon with a sensual core of fruit, bright integrated acids and a supple, harmonious saline finish. A beautiful wine with class written all over it. Drink from 2025 to 2045+.’ – Greg Sherwood MW, 97+/100

‘85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Petit Verdot. The Cab from a vineyard at 500m above sea level, the highest elevation on the farm – it burned down in 2009 and was replanted. Matured for 20 months in 300-litre barrels, 65% new. Red currant and cassis, subtle notes of flowers and herbs, pencil shavings and oak spice on the nose before an extremely elegant palate – pure fruit, urgent acidity and fine tannins. Terrific detail, plenty of refreshment and an extraordinarily long finish. Alcohol is a relatively modest 13.5% but the wine is not insubstantial – just wonderfully focused and precise.’ – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 97/100
