Dried pear & mango, green olive tapenade, an unusual olive oil note, 12 presents its complexity quietly, layer upon layer, anchored by grapefruit freshness. A wonderful way to experience tiny 2T/hectare production of palomino & chenin.’ – Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2014, 4.5* 

A pure, chiseled style, with white peach, jicama, honeysuckle and salted almond notes, giving way to subtle brioche and shortbread hints through the long, finely tuned finish. This is sneakily long, showing good precision. Palomino and Chenin Blanc... 400 cases made.’ – Wine Spectator (June 2014), 92/100

Palomino and Chenin Blanc on beach sand and very chalky soil, right on the coast. Broad and a little soft but very tight. A curiosity. But, as usual from Eben Sadie, very well made.’ Jancis Robinson (June 2013), 16.5/20
