'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

'66% Grenache, 21% Mourvèdre and 12% Shiraz – no Cinsault in this vintage and arguably more refined as a result. A pretty nose with top notes of flowers, herbs and spice before wild berry. The palate is light-bodied with lovely fruit purity, fresh acidity and powdery tannins. Accessible without being simple, this has lip-smacking refreshment value.' – Christian Eedes, WineMag.co.za, 92/100

'2019 riper-fruited (13.7% alcohol) & a touch less charm, perhaps due to no cinsaut this year: 66% grenache with mourvèdre & syrah. Forward & characterful, yet typically unassuming; bright, gently firm, soft-textured palate, delicious long finish. Give it time. WO W Cape.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (92/100)

'The 2019 Wanderer’s Heart is our Cape Red – a wine that is built around the incredible vineyards found all over the Western Cape. Aromas of ruby grapefruit, dark red berries and cassia bark. The wine is poised on the palate with soft, chalky tannins, which give way to a finish of black cherries, cedar wood and cinnamon. The wine is bright and keenly balanced, very pure in its fruit with a dusting of fine tannin to complete the picture.' – John Seccombe, Winemaker
