4 ½ Stars 2020 Platter’s South African Wine Guide
Nutty, toasty notes dominate 18 (91 pts) in youth (45% new barrels), but there’s plenty of sweet fruit & a serious acidity in the balance on the palate, which is rich, lemony & nicely dry. More forceful than the 12.9% alcohol would suggest.

Marked by seductive oak aromas and flavors, this brings out peach and quince details midpalate, followed by hints of fleur de sel and clove. Vibrant and balanced, revealing accents of pine on the finish. Drink now through 2024.
