Critics Ratings

'It has a very expressive nose of cassis, cigar box and earthiness while the palate displays plenty of pure, concentrated fruit, smooth but not slippery tannins and moderate acidity. Depending on your frame of mind, it can easily be considered a superlative wine.'  - Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za 2012, 18/20

"Stony mineral elegance stunning foil for 98, fatter wine though Initially reticent, with watermark 'Kanonkop' herbaceousness.' - Platter's SA Wine Guide 2003, 5*

Best Bordeaux-style red blend - Old Mutual Trophy Show, 2002

Best in Class Silver - International Wine and Spirit Competition (IWSC) 2005
