Awards/Reviews

5 Stars 2020 Platter’s South African Wine Guide
White blend, deserving of SA icon status, with 9 maximum 5-star ratings since 03 debut. 18 (95 pts) picked from one block over 5 days. Barrel-fermented sauvignon (40% new oak) with 25% semillon in clay pot. Core of sweet ripe fruit; very bright, with a stony freshness. Oak scarcely noticeable except in breadth & silkiness. Long lingering. Will greatly benefit from good few years in bottle.

Winemaker Notes

Isliedh is a remarkable combination of Cape coastal Sauvignon Blanc drenched in richly textured Sémillon. Both varieties adding to the complexity of the wine. The blend offers beautiful floral notes of white orchid, rose and peach blossom. The fruit leaps from the glass unveiling a harmonious blend of white fruits, ripe nectarine, pink grapefruit, figs and lemon curd. Hints of floral oak spice combined with fresh thyme gives the wine an extra layer of depth. The palate is rich, saline, full and textured with the classic long lasting mineral finish. 2020 – 28
