4 ½ Stars 2022 Platter’s South African Wine Guide
Finer, more refined aromas than Kadette version, subtly spicy & scrubby. 19 (94 pts) dense more than heavy, fresher than 14.5% alcohol & 100% new wood suggest – beautifully balanced & lively, with characteristic sweet fruit but a fairly dry finish.

It’s no mean feat to make 75,000 bottles of a Pinotage of this quality, which expresses all of the good things about the variety and none of its weaknesses. Rich, supple and violet scented, with glossy tannins, fine 80% new oak and succulent strawberry and blackberry fruit. 2023-30
