91 pts James Suckling Nov 2023
Freshly sliced apples, crushed stones, lemons and white pears on the nose. Lovely freshness and creaminess, with a medium body and bright, sleek finish. Drink now. Screw cap.

4 ½ Stars 2024 Platter’s South African Wine Guide
A must for any chenin lover, from old vines in Swartland. 22 (90 pts) notch up on 21 (89 pts), fresh, with tropical fruit, hint of green herbs balanced by texture & spice from 2% portion in oak, 6 months. Will reward aging.

Winemaker Notes

Vineyard Notes:
From three sustainably farmed vineyard parcels in different parts of the Swartland: One parcel of 40 year old Chenin planted in the stony Shale and Schist based soils of Kasteelberg, and two parcels of 40+ year-old dry land, bush vine Chenin grown in the decomposed Granite soils of the Paardeberg.

Production Notes:
Grapes are chilled in our cold room then pressed whole bunch and the juice is allowed to settle overnight. Minimal SO 2 is added and, as with all our wines, no further additions are made. The juice is then racked to tank (85%) and older French oak barrels (15%) for fermentation. Fermentation is with indigenous yeasts and lasts up to 6 weeks. The barrels are racked and blended with the tank fermented portion and then bottled.
