5 Stars 2021 Platter’s South African Wine Guide
Sleek, naturally fermented 19 (95 pts) shows a different side to this exceptional range of chenins. 44 year old Bottelary bushvine block only one to receive morning sun (slower ripening & UV levels equating freshness). Yellow plum & apple converge into an energetic finish. Only older oak, to show off its steel & verve.

The second of a trio of wine from the same 45-year old vineyard in the Bottelary Hills, where “some winemaker’s influence interferes with the naked grape,” according to Tertius Boshoff, this sees 20% new wood, with the rest in stainless steel. Pear, citrus and tarte tatin flavours are skillfully married in the palate. 2021-26
