Critics Ratings

‘The nose shows of cherry, red currant and some floral perfume to go with some slightly nutty, earthy notes. The palate is light bodied with rather tart acidity. A little brittle and dried out but not without pleasure.’ - Christian Eedes, 92/100 (Apr 2022)

Provenance

The Distell Tabernacle - Stellenbosch
