5 Stars 2021 Platter’s South African Wine Guide
Selected from estate’s 40 ha of pinotage to be flagship. Far more fragrant & elegant than 16 (90 pts), with less alcohol (13.5%), silky 17 ***** (95 pts) has fine-grained tannin grip around bright raspberry, red plum & cherry fruit. Intense yet beautifully polished, gently spiced by 2 years in 50% new French oak. Very stylish.

Top 10 – 92 pts
Matured for 18 months in French and American oak, some new. Red and black fruit, a slight herbal edge plus vanilla and spice on the nose while the palate is medium bodied with bright acidity and fine, mouthcoating tannins, the finish gently savoury.
