‘"There's no ceiling on price for South Africa," says Mike Ratcliffe, whose top wine sells out at and ambitious R1,990. Dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon, with support from 24% Merlot, 10% Malbec and 8% Cabernet Franc, this is a plush, layered, complex Bordeaux style blend showing scented coffee bean oak, fine-boned tannins, layers of blackcurrant, bay leaf and dark chocolate and a fresh, focused finish. Ripe and intense, but very well balanced. 2024-35’ – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2023, 96/100

'Series C 2020 displays great density of red to black colour and bright crimson rim. Deep, sensuous aromatics with clear Series C typicity of dark blue/black fruit notes. Rich layers of black currant pastille, liquorice, hints of Juniper berry and charred Cedar-wood offering appreciable sophistication. The palate is deliciously broad and harmonious, displaying “fruit sweetness” throughout. Luscious mid-palate with ripe tannins, good weight and texture. Both linear and continuous, showing perfect presence and great length. Beautifully integrated. The vintage reflects a quintessential elegance, with a core of satin-textured tannins and youthful energy. While alluring in its youth, the 2020 Series C promises a decade or more of cellaring to realise its full potential.' – Winemaker
