Awards/Reviews

100 points Tim Atkin MW 2020

A one-hudred-point white? From South Africa? I can almost hear the tutting and clucking from here. But I defy anyone to taste this monumental wine, preferably among a line-up of other, world-class wines and resist its charms. The crop was down 60%, resulting in an old-vine Chenin of mind-blowing focus, depth and concentration. Quince, lemon and subtle Asian spices segue into a palate of nuances, corners, light and shade and dark. Well done, Eben Sadie. Well done, the van Lill family, who grow the grapes. Well done, South Africa. 2023-31

Winemaker Notes

The vines struggled with the drought and harvest was 70% less than in a normal year, yet the wine is unbelievably harmonious and poised. Drinking this wine is the closest you will get to drinking liquid crystal.
