Awards/Reviews

4 ½ Stars 2021 Platter’s South African Wine Guide

Comes with a recommendation: be patient, 18 (93 pts) will develop & improve for many years. 5-way Bordeaux blend is focused & concentrated, well structured with fine tannins & an underpin of 40% new oak, 20 months, for the deep & persistent flavour.

 

92 pts Tim Atkin MW 2020

Private Collection is Thys Louw’s well-priced Bordeaux blend, made from a medley of Cabernet Sauvignon with 37% Merlot, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc. Serious yet refreshing, it’s a cool climate style, with scented oak, granular tannins and leafy, refreshing blackcurrant and red plum flavours. 2021-26

Winemaker Notes

20 months oak maturation in 40% new 225L French oak barrels.

Deep dark chocolate and enticing cedar aromas appear first on the nose, followed by wafting notes of blackberry jam, cherry and cassis. The firm, well-structured palate features robust yet sweet tannins and a broad range of flavours ranging from black cherry and red fruits carried along by the richness of its oak and vanilla notes. It is long and smooth now, with an intriguing character that will continue to develop with years to come.
