'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

The bright and fragrant nose shows a combination of white blossoms, blackcurrant, nectarine and passionfruit, following on to a zippy, green apple, lime and saline-etched palate. It is entering its drinking window now but will evolve beautifully over the next decade, becoming deeper fruited while keeping its bright, salty, lime-like edge. This is a great food wine. – James Pietersen (Mar 2021)

'The wine displays a stunning light straw colour with a brilliant green edge. The nose opens with aromas of Passion Fruit and lime juice subtly interplayed with Lemongrass and Elderflower. There is an amazing freshness as the wine enters the palate, with zesty green apple flavours leading to a creamy mid-palate and a lingering saline finish.' – Winemaker
