'The wine shows an attractive lemony yellow-green colour with a complex nose of citrus, white peach, pineapple, spice, citrus blossoms, apricot and buttered toast aromas. The taste is long and elegant with a lively minerality.' – Winemaker

Tasting notes on the 2019 vintage:
'Toast & citrus aromatic interplay on 2019, with lemon & lime notable on the tensely tight, bright & elegant palate. Should benefit from a good few years in bottle. Wholebunch, ferment & 10 months on lees in oak, 30% new; 13.9% alcohol.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (94/100)

'André van Rensburg sources his reserve bottling from two sites on the beautiful Vergelegen estate. Showing scented one-third new wood and the same amount of malolactic, this is a finely balanced Chardonnay, with pear and lemongrass flavours, good texture and a pert, refreshing finish. Drink 2021-25.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2021, 92/100
