About this Item

White, 2019
6 (1 x 6) 750ml

Established in 2008, owner and winemaker Donovan Rall is one of the driving forces behind the South African fine wine revolution. His philosophy is a simple hands-off approach, with each parcel allowed to mature and ferment naturally in order to reflect the character of each vineyard. Today his wines have a cult following and sell on allocation around the world.

Critics Ratings

‘Generosity of warm Swartland, freshness of cooler Stellenbosch combine in complex 2019. Chenin and Verdelho (68/28) with drop Viognier deliver aromatic breadth; ripe stonefruit, earthy tones and floral nuance; limy, greengage zest enhance tension, texture and long sweet-fruit finish. Memorable. Wholebunch, older-oak ferment and ageing, 10% of Chenin in concrete.’ - Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2021, 5* (96 pts)

'Showing its highest-ever levels of acidity, this brilliant blend uses fruit from seven vineyards and is a cuvée of mostly Chenin Blanc with 28% Verdelho and 4% Viognier. Floral, leesy and complex with wonderful harmony and palate depth, notes of aniseed, pear and beeswax and racy minerality. One of the Cape's best blended whites. 2021-29.' - Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2020, 96/100

'Pale gold. Complex nose with seriously fresh acidity and a nose that really could be described as a bouquet of floral aromas. Plus the tang of true, old-vine Chenin Blanc and the promise of a long life. Seems underpriced for the probity of intention and promise of ageability. It would seem a shame to drink this before 2021 and possibly even before 2022. Some fashionable light bitterness on the end.' - Jancis Robinson MW, JancisRobinson.com, 17/20 (Sept 2020)
