Critics Ratings

'Cassis, violets, a certain leafiness plus sea breeze and the vaguest hint of undergrowth on the nose while the palate appears lean in the best way (alcohol: 13.5%) with pure fruit and fresh acidity, the tannins still grippy. Supremely elegant.' - Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za 2019, 94/100.
