Critics Ratings

'2001 among finest vintages: tons sweet supple fruit now, promising good things in bottle. 14.5% alc. All these finely crafted wines; good for decade-plus improvement. 2 years French oak, +-50% new' - Platter’s SA Wine Guide, 5* (2004)

'Very dark, still blueish. Savoury nose without a hint of the obvious sweetness that can dog simpler New World Cabernets. An appetising leafiness. Very fresh and youthful. But great build and energy. The wine has a beginning, middle and end and real lift. Still quite a bit of fine tannin. Real appeal. Both opulent and lifted. [The cheapest wine by far! Not nearly as expensive as Vergelegen's V below, nor even than their Bordeaux blend.' - Jancis Robinson 19/20 (Feb 2008)
