4 ½ Stars 2022 Platter’s South African Wine Guide
Always delicious & well-crafted, never more so than in 17 (93 pts), showing signature forthright styling: deep black fruit, salt & black pepper spicing, fine tannin structure neatly reining in the boldness. Old & young blocks picked separately this vintage, usual miserly yield of 2t/ha & 24 months mostly French barrels, 30 % new.
