'The 2020 Wanderer's Heart is a blend of 41% Grenache Noir, 30% Syrah and 29% Mourvèdre. It’s a little closed on the nose but opens with aeration, offering red berry fruit intermixed with white pepper, clove and wild fennel. The palate is full of crunchy red fruit, superb acidity and tension and reveals a touch of curry leaf on the finish. Yet another great 2020 from Jon Seccombe. Drink 2023-2036.' – Neal Martin, Vinous, 94/100 (Nov 2021)

'41% Grenache from Voor Paardeberg, 30% Syrah from both Stellenbosch and Swartland and 29% Mourvèdre from Bot River. A charming wine with aromatics of red berries, flowers, fynbos, fynbos and spice before a palate that is medium bodied and well-balanced – good freshness and powdery tannins.' – Christian Eedes,, 91/100

'The 2020 Wanderer's Heart is our Cape Red – a wine that is built around the incredible vineyards found all over the Western Cape. The wine is focused, with red cherries, violets and cinnamon on the nose. The tannins are supple and integrated into a palate of red currants and black cardamom.' – John Seccombe, Winemaker

Tasting notes on the 2019 vintage:
'Grenache forms the core of this GSM blend, with Mourvèdre and Syrah supplying the other 33%. Made with 80% whole bunches, it's a fresh, perfumed, grippy red with very little oak influence, notes of clove and white pepper and layers of summer berry and black cherry fruit. Complex stuff. Drink 2021-27.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2020, 93/100
