'Loads of perfume, almost exotic with notes of litchi and pressed rose. The hints of green fig and ripe winter melon have a sea breeze and fynbos edge to them, leading to a saline palate with hints of fennel, black currant and an exceptionally long and fragrant finish. A masterful match with seared scallop, kapokbos, apricot and browned butter. Best from 2025 onwards.' – James Pietersen (Jan 2022)

'The wine displays a stunning light straw colour with a brilliant green edge. The nose opens with aromas of green apple and lime juice subtly interplayed with Caped Gooseberry and a subtle wisp of blackcurrant leaf. There is an amazing freshness as the wine enters the palate, with zesty green apple flavours leading to a textured mid-palate and a lingering saline finish.' – Winemaker

Tasting notes on the 2020 vintage:
'Thrilling, vital 2020 from best Elgin cool-climate grapes. Zingy lime, flint & granadilla concentration with elderflower finish. Pure & focused, 4% oak-fermented & on lees 5 months for body. A keeper.' – Platter's Guide, 5* (95/100)

'4% fermented in older 400-litre barrels. Very expressive on the nose with top notes of flowers and even a slight grassiness before pear, peach, lime and some granadilla. Pure fruit, racy acidity and a pithy finish. Not too lean, this has a nicely creamy mid-palate thanks to five months on the lees.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 93/100
