Scores & Reviews

4 ½ Stars 2023 Platter’s South African Wine Guide

Outstanding definition of ripe black berry & cherry fruit on 21 (93 pts) woven into rich dark-chocolate & liquorice from a year in seasoned oak. Always a big wine (14.5% alc) but people friendly & consistent top seller at Disney in the US.
